Alex Marquez signs with Repsol Honda for 2020



Honda Racing Corporation have announced the signing of double World Champion Alex Marquez. The young Spanish rider and reigning Moto2™ Champion will join the Repsol Honda Team on a one-year contract.

He will move from the intermediate class to partner eight-time World Champion and older brother Marc Marquez in 2020 for his debut season in the premier class aboard the Honda RC213V.

I guess Alex’s first goal is to beat Jorge’s 2019 season.

Marc said it is a hard bike to ride. Look at the rest of the Honda riders.

Maybe Marc will share some of his secrets after he has gained enough of a point lead a few races in.

Expected, Alex will block other riders so his bro can win. Then he takes over when he is older.

So cool to be racing with one's brother at the highest level. Marc said his brother is the better rider as he is taller and his balls are slightly bigger. We shall see........

LOL I wonder, was the testicular measurement done by hand? Weight? Maybe a pair of digital calipers? Did they have a 3rd party to determine that, or....?

You know, I just thought of something in looking at your signature about sliding and not enough lube. Perhaps you should start "Team Astroglide" as a racing team? I'll be that'd get a ton of laughs at the track.

This could be interesting. Quatararo is challenging Marc right now and will have the factory Yamaha next year (with improvements, as well). He should have little problem dealing with Alex, and I wonder how that'll impact the Marquez Brothers psychology. If Alex plays wingman to Marc, he may get beat up pretty good. More likely Alex will have a steep learning curve and will have a few "unforced errors" to contend with before he can keep up at the sharp end.

I was wondering if there were 2 brothers in the same team in the MotoGP category before...
