Marc Márquez has been through one of the most difficult seasons since his arrival in the MotoGP. The rider from Spain hasn’t been able to get back on his feet since that fateful opening race in 2020, in Jerez, when he fractured his right humerus.

Marc, # 93, underwent his first surgery and, a few days later, he got back on the bike to try to compete in the second Grand Prix of the season. But the pain prevented him from doing so and, as if that weren’t enough, the plate that had been inserted broke the week that followed.

He then had surgery again and was excluded indefinitely from the MotoGP grid. But that surgery didn’t go well, and an infection forced him back into the operating room. Finally, after many months of suffering and rehabilitation, he was able to compete again in 2021.
Although he returned to the podium and even won races that year, he never felt completely comfortable and was severely limited by his right arm.

The situation continued in 2022 and, at the Italian Grand Prix, with a third of the calendar completed, Márquez decided to get off the bike again and undergo a fourth operation for his arm.

That’s when they discovered that the bone had greatly rotated, preventing him from moving it freely on the RC213V and causing him severe pain every time he got on the track.

The eight-time world champion acknowledged that it was his last attempt towards recovery, so the success of the surgery was critical to the rest of his career.

So, a few months ago, Prime Video announced the creation of a series of documentaries that presents the entire process that Marquez went through in 2022 -  from his first races of the year to his return to the circuits at the end of the season, including his surgery - and motorsport.com aired the series trailer.

the docu-series will also talk about other problems that Marc has had to face, like the diplopia after his fall in Indonesia and his transfer to Madrid.

The five-episode series will air in more than 200 countries, and the first episode is scheduled for February 2023.
