In what has become a tradition in the Spanish town, the Repsol Honda rider marked his latest honour with a party alongside his neighbours and fans. Atop the float that his fan club acquired for the celebrations, Márquez was the protagonist of a parade in which there was a band, hundreds of bikers and thousands of fans who were waved too by the rider and his team.

Márquez was accompanied by his brother, Álex, and his entire team from this year. In addition, his parents, grandparents, and other relatives were alonside the young multiple World Champion at different times in the celebration. In the morning, the mayor of the town, Ramon Royes, welcomed Márquez at the Town Hall, where he greeted the first fans who had come out for the occasion.

The most awaited moment came at 7pm, when a parade that traveled through the centre of Cervera got underway. The delegation finished its route in the Pius XII square, where once again the Repsol Honda rider was given a rousing reception by a completely devoted crowd.
