'It will take time to come back in a good physical condition' - Marquez

Marc Marquez is having to limit his training between MotoGP events so as not to over-stress his recovering arm and is not doing any sort of riding.

The eight-time world champion make his comeback from a injury at Portimao after a year away and although he finished seventh, Marquez believes his results will depend on the type of track.

“Honestly speaking I don’t know, because it depends on the circuit, if it’s really physical track or not. For example, the last seven laps I was not even able to use the elbow to touch the ground," said the Repsol Honda man.


“I was riding in a really strange riding style and I was not able to do anything. Another important point that we already speak with the doctors before this race, and the comeback to the competition means the training at home has to be less.

“So, that means now from race to race I will not ride any bike, I will just train at the gym three, four days maximum and with not a lot of weight because the bone is ok, but the stress that we can put on the bone must be progressive.

“It cannot be every day and every week. So, this is another reason that will of course means it will take time to come back in a good physical condition.

“But I must follow the advice from the doctors because they give to me the opportunity a MotoGP bike.

“So, now I will just ride a bike race by race, and then after the next check we’ll see how the bone is and if we can do a little bit more. But the next check will be after Jerez.”
