2. Marc Marquez

Marc Marquez Repsol Honda

As stated in the preamble to this countdown, Marquez injured his fibula, and because of the incident, has been unable to participate in preseason testing, choosing to instead focus on the lower risk option of rehabilitation. Will he be 100% ready for action this weekend? Judging by his youthful age and ability to drag an elbow no matter what his physical condition, he may well be able to compete and win. But there’s one determined former champion with whom he must contend.

    Personally I’d put it (from 5 to 1st) Lorenzo, Aleix E, Marquez, Pedrosa, Rossi. Rossi’s been fast in pre-season testing, Lorenzo not so much. Aleix has really surprised, Pedrosa has tied Rossi as the fastest time at the recent test, and while Marquez will probably not be slowed much due to his leg, he will be some. I realize relegating Lorenzo to 5th is risky.
