MotoGP Sepang: Sick Marquez sits out second practice

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez was forced to sit out this afternoon’s second MotoGP free practice session at Sepang after being struck down with gastroenteritis.

The newly-crowned world champion was quickest in the morning session but then didn’t feel well enough to continue.

“In the morning I didn’t feel very well - I’ve had gastroenteritis for the last two days - but I was able to go out and ride even though I was not at 100%,” said Marquez.


“After the session and the effort I put in, I began feeling worse, because gastroenteritis also dehydrates you. Looking at the track conditions, we decided not to go out. Tomorrow we’ll try to improve and I think it has been good for me not go out there, and to instead save myself for Saturday and especially Sunday.”
