2013 MotoGP: Marc Marquez Introduces His Honda to his Grandfather [Video]
His grandfather is one of the most important persons in Marc's life, so this encounter has a very high emotional value for the MotoGP rookie sensation.
We cannot help noticing that Marquez' grandfather has not lost his sense of humor and has kindly refused his nephew's proposal of getting on the bike... saying it was "too big a donkey" for him. No mention on age, health conditions, or anything else. And of course, with a hint of a smile on his face, too.
Today Marc Marquez, his team and team mate Dani Pedrosa will start a 3-day test riding session at the Circuit of the Americas, near Austin, Texas. The Yamaha factory team and Honda's satellite LCR team will also be present, and we'll bring you news of these tests as soon as they surface.
