Why Is Marc Marquez So Great On Anti-Clockwise Tracks?
So what is the reason Marc Marquez is so strong when paving the anti-clockwise type circuit?
The Boxrepsol site once made an article that has something to do with Marquez’s practice since starting his career as a racer.
Yes, the older brother of Alex Marquez is very often practicing on the dirt track whose circuit is oval in shape and is required to lay down the motorbike to the left as much as possible.
Because of this habit, Marc Marquez is very superior when devouring the left corner. Even when he won the 2021 German MotoGP race.
At that time the condition of the right humerus was not fully fit but he could still finish first because Sachsenring had a lot of left corners so it didn’t require right hand work.
Recently, many racers have started to participate in intense dirt track practice. But keep in mind, this type of exercise also carries a high risk of falling. So for professional racers, they are also required to be very careful when doing dirt track.
