How Alex Marquez stepped out of his brother’s shadow

By:

Both Marquez brothers enjoyed title success in 2019 - with Marc triumphing again in MotoGP and Alex winning Moto2. But for the latter, it has been a painful journey back to glory, riding in the shadow of his brother's success

"It's not easy being 'the brother of...," six-time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez says of his younger brother Alex. The Honda rider was speaking after his brother's Moto2 title had been secured at last weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix.

Elite sport is a cut-throat business, where even the gentlest humans can become ruthless in the pursuit of glory. Naturally, siblings are competitive. So, while that surely must hold true in the Marquez household, judging by Marc and Alex's demeanour when together in the paddock, theirs is also a relationship of pure love and respect for one another.
