Rider bio

"I become interested when I started to watch motorbikes on TV then I started racing minimotos. My father has always supported me and encouraged me to train, when I am not racing I like to go to the gym and work on my fitness," explains Marc who's racing heroes are Dani Pedrosa and Jack Miller, his favourite subject at school is English.

His racing aims are clear: "I want to win championships and make real my dream." 2014 was Marc's first season in the Rookies Cup "In 2014 I learnt a lot about how to be more professional, and learnt to better ride the bike. My driving style has now changed, I brake later and enter the curves better."

"The Brno race was a race where I gained a lot of experience, there was much fighting with the group up front and I finished 5th. Aragon was the best race of my career up to then. In Race 2 I was running first or second and having a great time but finally I had a problem with the bike and Jorge Martin beat me."

"In 2015, I think I'll be in the group of the top 3 and I think I can fight for the title."

"I like to win I'm a person who always likes to win. It is good have a winning mind. I also like working with my team to sort out problems with the bike and have fun with them that gives me a good feeling."

Marc is looking forward to the GP circuits of the Rookies Cup season again, particularly Silverstone and Brno. "I like tracks with wide asphalt and now that my braking and cornering has improved there are a lot more tracks I like."
