ONBOARD – MARC MÁRQUEZ GETS THE TIGHT SQUEEZE
Incredible footage from the second annual SuperPrestigi DirtTrack in Barcelona. MotoGP ace Marc Márquez gets the tight squeeze entering the first corner of the main event but somehow hangs on to come out on top.
Marc Márquez has won the second edition of Superprestigi Dirt Track in a thrilling Superfinal. AMA Grand National winner Jared Mees finished close behind the Spaniard in second, with US rider Kenny Noyes completing the podium.
Márquez got to the Superfinal after having cleaned three of the four finals in Superprestigio Class, while Mees left no hostages in all three Finales in the Open Class.
Both were a class in their own in this Second edition of the Superprestigio DirtTrack, in a packed Arena with over 9000 thousand spectators.
But with advantage to Márquez in the SuperFinal, it was the Spaniard who took the win…
“I’m happy and I’ve enjoyed it all the way! I want to thank all my fellow riders for putting such a show together and make it possible for the second edition. The best new today was to know that Brad (Baker) was OK at the end after his accident.
“This Event had a lot of media attention and the public in the grandstands were very generous. I was a little bit nervous before the Superfinal because I knew Jared Mees was really fast, but I’m happy and relieved now. I have improved my technique in this track because last year I notice that Brad was using different settings that my team and I have applied for this edition”.
