8x World Champ Marc Marquez has suffered a nasty high side which has fractured his humerus and caused partial paralysis of his radial nerve.
In the first race back after a 4 month absence due to COVID19, Marquez had been leading the race before running off track after a miraculous save and falling to stone cold last.
What followed was the most amazing feat. He caught up the entire field and retook 3rd place before this horrible accident.
To put into context, his main rivals must have been so demoralized to see him effectively parked in a gravel trap to then overtake them 10 laps later. Think of Usain Bolt stopping midway through the 100m final to tie his shoelace and then resume the race and catch the rest up.
The only way the rest of the field can defeat him in a championship is through injury. We hope he fully recovers from his surgery on Tuesday.
