Marc Márquez gets back on a bike after two months away

The Repsol Honda Team rider continues to progress with his recovery and got onboard a bike days before the first official test of 2019.

The winter of 2018-19 has been an atypical one for Marc Márquez. Accustomed to using December and January to train dirt-track or motocross, the reigning World Champion was unable to do so this time around due to a shoulder operation. He would get back on a bike this week, and the Repsol Honda Team are able to offer the first exclusive images.

On November 29th he dismounted his Honda RC213V in Jerez after finishing the final 2018 test. On December 4th he underwent surgery to fix a recurring injury to his left shoulder. Since then, the Repsol Honda rider has focused all his efforts on recovering from the procedure. Two months later, last Tuesday the current World Champion rode at the Circuit d’Alcarràs in Lleida, ahead of the first official test of 2019 on Wednesday, February 6th in Sepang (Malaysia).
