Pada gelaran post test moto GP di Valencia hari senin, 10 Nopember 2014 kemarin. Alex Marquez mendapatkan surprise dari HRC sebagai bentuk apresiasi Honda atas juara dunia di segmen Moto 3. Alex Marquez ditawari untuk ngincipi motor sang kakak Marc Marquez yakni RC213V yang berkubikasi 1000 cc. Nah bisa dibayangkan senangnya naik kelas dari 250 cc ke 1000 cc. Apalagi bisa tandem sama sang kakak di lintasan Sirkuit Valencia meskipun balapan eksibisi ini hanya berlangsung 12 putaran saja 😀
“It was a wonderful experience riding with Alex and following him around the track! Sometimes it got a bit too much for him to take in, which is normal because it was his first laps on a MotoGP bike. I really enjoyed myself, but also had a bit of trouble going behind him because sometimes he went a little wide. Overall, he did very well. Coming from Moto3 and completing some laps on a MotoGP bike is difficult and he surprised us with how well he adapted. Alex enjoyed this experience; we’ll see if in the future we can repeat it!” (Marc Marquez)
“I am very happy to have tried the MotoGP bike. Yesterday I fulfilled a dream that I had, and today I fulfilled another. It’s not every day you can try a bike like this! I want to thank Honda and especially Shuhei Nakamoto for this opportunity that they have given me. It is a great gift after becoming Moto3 World Champion. What impressed me the most was the power that the bike has. The feeling you get when you’re on the straight is incredible and braking is amazing too, plus the time between corners is greatly reduced. At first I was a little stiff on the bike, but I think I held up well. It was a lot of fun and I ended up a little tired!” (Alex Marquez).
Sebuah kesempatan langka kakak beradik yang sama-sama juara dunia bisa ‘main-main’ motor dilintasan yang sama dengan spek motor kasta tertinggi moto GP…hehehe.
