Baker takes Superprestigio victory as Marquez crashes out

AMA flat track champion Brad 'the Bullet' Baker emerged victorious on Sunday night from the resurrected Superprestigio race in Barcelona's Palau Sant Jordi, after MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez crashed out while battling the American. Baker, who won the Open class against Europe's best flat trackers with ease, came up against Marquez in the final of the Superprestigio class, consisting of...

Superprestigio

 Unless you are really fluent in Spanish, you might like to know that the start of the race is at four minutes thirty.

I could not help notice that Brad Baker seems to take the race far more easily after Marc Marquez fall off. Baker seems to be more in control throughout, Marquez is wilder but faster.

This may be an omen for 2014.

Cheers

Dave

Baker looked like he was strolling around. Looked to me that he was mindful of the fact that it was a show and that's what he appeared to be giving the crowd by 'battling' with Marquez. Each time he got in front he was taking wide lines when he could easily have taken the inside line, shut Marquez out and gone. Instead he rode lines that allowed them to keep exchanging the lead, keeping the commentators hyped up and crowd interested. On the occassions he got shoved really wide and lost a good few bike lengths, he easily caught Marquez back up within 2 or 3 corners.

Marquez looked pretty much at home on the bike and was fast, but Baker didn't look as though he was trying that hard. A bit comical as well, to see the often called bully boy of Motogp knocked off his bike so easily.

Wish they'd do this sort of thing on a full size track though instead of the typical stadium micro version.

Hardly staged managed to take the home favourite out of the race....

I just think Baker was riding well within himself, probably realised there was little point clearing off and lapping everyone, so, made a show of it with Marquez who was at least fast enough to make it look real and showed he's got more than a little talent on a bike and would appear to be a decent 'all-rounder'..

Baker

 Looked to be out on a Sunday stroll. Which of course he should have been as this is what he does for a living. Too bad Hayden wasn't well enough to compete.

Baker used his right elbow as a weapon to knock MM out. Dirty, premeditated and overhand.
