Marc Marquez leaves Moto2 with a legendary win at Valencia

Marc Marquez was penalized with a back of the grid start following his incident with Simone Corsi in free practice, but this didn’t stop the new 2012 Moto2 World champion from taking a truly phenomenal victory in today’s Moto2 race at Valencia and leave the Moto2 class with an incredible nine victories (26 in his career) and prove – if anyone still had any doubts – that all the hype around this super talented rider is more than well justified and that he is more than ready for MotoGP.

Completing an all Spanish podium with Marquez was Julian Simon and Nico Terol who honoured the Ricardo Tormo circuit with a third place after the Valencia circuit officially gave turn 4 his name.
Despite the imperious victory it wasn’t an easy task for Marquez who started from 33rd on the grid and when the lights went out Pol Espargaro got the holeshot but at the second turn Terol grabbed the lead while Marquez sliced through the dangerously packed riders to find himself in mid pack and by the end of the first lap was 11th gaining a massive 22 positions on the wet and treacherous surface.

Terol in front of the group gained a comfortable 1.
4 second advantage followed by Simon and further down were Simone Corsi, Pol Espargaro and Gino Rea and Marquez who was already ninth and closing in on fast on Dominique Aegerter in front of him.
In the meantime Simone began chasing down Terol catching him on the 7th lap and taking the lead on 8th as a series of riders began crashing while Simon built up more than a two second advantage against second place Terol.
Further down the field the fairings bashing began between Aergerter, Rea and Marquez, but once the Spaniard broke away from them there was no stopping him as he started to chase the front runners down and with 8 laps left caught Terol passing him with ease and then set his sights on Simon who was six seconds in front of him.
Marquez gained a massive one second per lap and in six was on Simone’s tail and with just two laps left passed him while the other Spaniard attempted a feeble fight, Marquez just sped away and would win the race with a 1.
2 second margin.
