The news arrived from Spain, from the pages of the Mundo Deportivo: Marc Marquez will not race this season and should even be undergoing a third operation for his arm. According to reports from the Spanish newspaper, Marc is not happy about how his arm is recovering.
Proof of this is the video published by the champion last Sunday (see HERE) when he celebrated his brother, Alex’s, podium in Aragon. In fact, Marc doesn’t move his right arm much, but it’s also true that Marc is left-handed, and it’s difficult to draw conclusions from a few seconds of footage.
The fact is that Honda, through its press office, was quick to deny the whole story with a message: “The Honda Repsol team wants to confirm that Marc Marquez's recovery is proceeding as planned. Despite being a long and intense process, Marc and the people on his team have no reason to worry.”
A firm denial with regard to any speculation and that Marc Marquez himself confirmed on his social networks, publishing a photo in which he’s training with weights.
But no one is making any predictions about when he’ll be returning to his bike. In Aragon, his brother Alex explained that "Marc is moving forward, day by day. He’ll be back when he feels better."
Honda already announced that Stefan Bradl will still be at the Teruel GP, so the last chance to get to see him on the track will be in Valencia (in one or both of the two scheduled races) or in Portimao.
