Cervera hails World Champion Marquez

Repsol Honda rider receives great reception in home town to celebrate his fifth World Championship -his third in the premier class.

In what has become something of a tradition, Marc Marquez was greeted by fans and Fan Club members in his home town of Cervera this Saturday, in celebration of his latest success: His fifth title in the Motorcycle World Championship. After starting the day with an institutional event at the Town Hall, the Repsol Honda rider enjoyed a parade of Cervera, accompanied by his team. On the trailer of a fire engine, they travelled along the main streets of the town until reaching a stage, from which Marquez addressed all of the gathered fans. The MotoGP World Champion kept the party atmosphere going, whilst at the same time thanking his team, the authorities and especially the fans for all the support he received this past season.
Marc Marquez: “I am very grateful to all the people who have come here today, once again, to celebrate in this great party. Before going to the Valencian Grand Prix, when I was cycling, I had already seen all the streets decked out with flags with my name on, and I began to feel butterflies in my stomach. I am very grateful, because these fans are not only there for me in the good times, they are also there in the bad times. It is an honour to receive these shows of affection and to be able to celebrate with all of the people here.”
