Márquez, as only Márquez can be

Marc Márquez has had a dream weekend in the Aragon Moto GP in Alcanyís, culminating in one of those triumphs only he can pull off. On Thursday the Motorland circuit honoured him by baptizing the 12th corner with his name. Then on Friday, he led the trials for just the second time this year, falling in the 3rd lap on Saturday but still, fighting for the pole position until the very end. Yesterday he fell again in the warm-up laps, but risked everything with a soft rear tire but finally beating Andrea Dovizioso in a face-to-face duel, or better said, elbow to elbow, in a final pass with less than three laps to go. An acrobatic fall by Jorge Lorenzo in the 1st lap which the Mallorcan blames on the Catalan rider, left one of his most serious contenders out of the race, giving him time to concentrate his efforts elsewhere. Márquez is now well ahead on the table and could take the title in three races.
