Marc Marquez 93

Marquez is a eight-time World Champion (1 each in the 125cc and Moto2 classes, plus six 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. In 2020 Marquez endured his most difficult season to date, injured at the first race and missing the rest of season. 2021 would see Marquez make an incredible return to the track, taking three victories before another injury ended his season early. In 2022, he begins the season as hungry as ever.

Pol Espargaro 44

Pol Espargaro has established himself as one of the most consistent riders in Grand Prix racing since his debut in 2006. Born in Granollers, the younger of two racing brothers burst onto the scene after domestic success and has continued to raise his profile ever since. Rarely finishing outside of the top ten, Espargaro has shown the speed and talent necessary to fight for victory in all classes and claimed the 2013 Moto2 World Championship after a long battle with Scott Redding. Debuting in the premier class with a satellite Yamaha, Pol Espargaro regularly fought with the factory teams before moving to KTM to help them develop their MotoGP machine. After working to turn it into a podium contender, Pol joined the Repsol Honda Team in 2021 and improved steadily throughout the year. A pole in Silverstone was followed by a second-place finish at the Emilia Romagna GP, his best finish in the premier class to date.
