Marc Márquez heads to Holland for Round 8

The Repsol Honda rider will take part in the Dutch TT this weekend, fresh from their podium in the Catalan GP and a test one day later.

Marc Márquez are currently third in the World Championship standings, with 88 points.

The Repsol Honda rider has been on the podium at the Dutch TT for seven consecutive years, winning the race on four of those occasions: In 2010 in 125cc, 2011 and 2012 in Moto2, and 2014 in MotoGP.

Marc Márquez: “We’re coming off a positive race and a promising day of testing in Catalunya, so we’re looking forward to getting back on the bike and to continuing on the same level in the next race”.

“I like Assen. We’ve had some exciting races there, and many good memories. Of course the weather is always unpredictable and makes things change very quickly, so we must be ready to adapt as we did in 2014 and last year. That, coupled with the fact that every race this season also seems quite unpredictable, means we’ll have to keep totally focused and work particularly hard beginning Friday morning to find a good setup for our bike and tyres, with the target of fighting for the podium in the race”.
