Marc Marquez to round off 2016 season in Valencia

Marc Marquez will celebrate his 150th Grand Prix this weekend in Valencia.

Marquez has triumphed on twice at Valencia (2014 in MotoGP and 2012 in Moto2) and has claimed four podiums at the track.

The 2016 MotoGP World Championship reaches its finale this Sunday at the Circuito Ricardo Tormo, and Marc Marquez will be back at full strength for the last round of the year. The race will be the 150th Grand Prix for the Repsol Honda Team rider, and his first race in front of his home fans since winning the title in Japan.

Marc Marquez: “It has been good coming back home after the three flyaway races with the title already won, and to celebrate it with all my family and friends. I had the chance to chill out a bit and get back to my usual training, both indoors in the gym and outdoors with some motocross and cycling. ‘Thanks’ to the jetlag, I had the opportunity to enjoy some really spectacular dawns on my bicycle! Anyway, the season isn’t over yet, as we’ll race in Valencia on Sunday, and after that we’ll have two important days of testing. Our target for the race is of course to try and finish on a high in front of our fans, possibly with a win or at least a podium. It is good to see that Dani is getting better and to know he’ll be back in Valencia”.
