Two-time MotoGP king Marc Marquez lifted the 2014 Superprestigio dirt-track trophy last night after reigning champion Brad Baker was forced out after a qualifying crash.
Spaniard Marquez beat AMA Grand National winner Jared Mees by three-tenths of a second with Spain-based American Kenny Noyes in third place.
He had won three of the four finals in the Superprestigio class while Mees won all of his races in the Open class and the pair clashed in the final in front of 9000 spectators.
“I’m happy and I’ve enjoyed all the way! I want to that all my fellow riders for putting such a show together and make it possible for the second edition,” said Marquez.
“The best new today was to know that Brad (Baker) was OK at the end after his accident. This event had a lot of media attention and the public in the grandstands were very generous. I was a little bit nervous before the Superfinal because I knew Jared Mees was really fast, but I’m happy and relieved now.”
