Marc Marquez: MotoGP hero pushes himself to limit in risky video

The MotoGP hero is top of the pile in the overall standings.

But, after a tough race at Mugello last time out, the Catalan is upping the ante.

He posted a video of himself aggressively careering around a corner on his motocross bike.

Marquez then added a jokey caption: “When you get off work on Friday.”

“MotoGP hero Marc Marquez is upping the ante in between races”

The Mugello showpiece saw Marquez finish second behind Danilo Petrucci.

It was a stunning showing from Petrucci who had never won a Grand Prix previously.

His team-mate, Andrea Dovizioso, bagged third as the championship race hots up.

Marquez looked confident on his motocross bike, but he admitted last week that Petrucci and Dovizioso had rattled him.

“On the last lap I was more concerned about defending than attacking,” Marquez told reporters.

“I was attacking, but I knew it would not happen in the braking.

“If it could have not thrown me as I always do, that we both go a little bit to turn off.

“But I knew if Dovizioso won, it did not suit me.

“I said: ‘We defend and we see in the last corner to see what happens, we came with a four point advantage and we go with eight.'”

Marquez has become the dominant force in MotoGP over the last few years.

Having made his premier class debut in 2013, he has only failed to win the championship once.

In 2015 he lost out to now team-mate Jorge Lorenzo.
