Face of happiness and illusion that of Alex Márquez in his first dawn as a MotoGP rider, as a new member of the powerful Repsol Honda team, which he arrives as a relay of the retired Jorge Lorenzo and as a companion of his brother Marc Márquez.

In a black jumpsuit of the Alpinestars brand, with details in blue, his favorite color, and white, and his number 73 on his back, he went first to take a photo shoot before settling in the LCR Honda box, which It will be his home during this test in Valencia, his being occupied by the tester Stefan Bradl and his brother, the eight-time world champion.

Like the great majority of the pilots present in this test, Alex has taken his time to make his first exit to the track, due to the low temperature of the asphalt. The pit lane traffic light opened at ten o'clock in the morning and Bradl was the first to leave, but the expected debut of the Moto2 champion waited until 11:06. He has done it with one of the Cal Crutchlow motorcycles, a 2019 Honda with black fibers, as an appetizer of the 2020 prototype with the orange colors of the Repsol Honda that he will ride, with the bad luck that he has gone to the ground in his eighth return. An anecdote, no more.

The best thing is that it has been a fall without physical consequences to regret, when he had been giving gas for 13 minutes (damn number) and rolled four seconds from his head, occupied by his brother Marc, and ahead of Binder, the other debutante. He has arrived at the change of direction of the curve 10, from left to right, and after losing the front wheel for a drag that hurts more in pride than in the physical, because he knows perfectly that at that moment all the attention was put on he. He apologized with his hands and then picked him up on the service track to return to the Emilio Alzamora scooter box and he could resume work without problems.
