Just over a year ago, Marc Márquez gave his brother Alex something very special for his 22nd birthday: nothing more and nothing less than a Honda CR 500 , a true myth of the world of motocross powered by a rabid two-stroke engine and 500 cc that is capable of delivering about 60 hp of power.

“I gave it to him because he was looking forward to it, it is to kill himself, ” Marc said days after his brother’s birthday. ” There is an old motocross motorcycle, a CR500, which I don’t know how he will drive it but he loved it, and I gave it to him. .
