Few achieve what Marc Márquez has by the age of 21.

Marc Márquez the three-time World Champion

After starting out riding when he could barely walk, Márquez made a rapid progression through domestic competitions to debut in the Grand Prix World Championship in 2008.

It took him just over two years to become World Champion in the 125cc class in 2010, before he stepped up to Moto2 and took the crown in 2012.

His most incredible success came in 2013 however, when Márquez became the youngest-ever MotoGP World Champion at just 20 years of age.
