Marc Marquez 93

Marquez is a six-time World Champion (1 each in the 125cc and Moto2 classes, plus 4 in MotoGP), and was the youngest rider ever to be crowned king of the premier class. During the 2014 season, he totaled 13 victories - the most premier-class wins in a single season, bettering the mark set by fellow Repsol Honda rider Mick Doohan in 1997. The 2015 season was Marquez’s most challenging year in MotoGP as he finished third, but he still managed five victories, nine podium finishes and eight pole positions. The 2016 MotoGP World Championship crowned Marc as the youngest rider to win 3 premier-class World Championships, bringing his tally to 5 titles over all classes in a GP career just 9 seasons long. In 2017 Marquez won his fourth MotoGP world championship in five years after his only rival Andrea Dovizioso crashed out of the season-ending race in Valencia. At 24 years and 268 days old, Marquez took the record from Mike Hailwood, who was 25 years and 107 days old when he won his fourth premier-class title in 1965. Marc was also the first rider in the 69-year history of grand prix motorcycling to win at least five races a season for eight years in a row.

Dani Pedrosa 26

After dominating the 125cc and 250cc categories with three consecutive World Championship titles from 2003 to 2005, Dani Pedrosa has become one of the most successful riders in Honda’s history and has achieved more podiums for the Japanese manufacturer than any other rider, with a total of 144. Besides, Dani has won at least 1 race for year for the last 15 seasons on his way to become the 8th most successful rider in history. Early in the 2015 season, he underwent a successful operation to repair an arm-pump condition, he won the Japanese and Malaysian rounds and reached the milestone of 100 premier-class podiums at the season-closing race in Valencia. Dani had a difficult start to the 2016 season, despite scoring two third places, but came on strong in the second half taking his 29th MotoGP win in Misano and equalling Phil Read’s 52 victories across all categories. Misfortune struck him a hard blow two races later at Motegi, and Dani was side-lined by a crash that left him nursing a broken right collarbone, left fibula and toe. The brave Spaniard once again fought back to recover as soon as possible and was able to return to his team and his bike for the Valencia finale in November.
