Reigning MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez has escaped unhurt in a second crash in the space of two days during a private HRC test at the Brno track in the Czech Republic.

The Repsol Honda rider was testing his current Repsol Honda RC213V machine when he lost the front at turn five.

He was uninjured in the fall and within minutes of dusting off his leathers, the 21-year-old was back out on track and completing his first run on the 2015 prototype RC213V.
This morning’s crash was the second time during the three-day private HRC test that Marquez has crashed. He fell on a drying track yesterday morning in a spill that also came at turn five.

The Spaniard has dominated the 2014 campaign and heads into the summer break with a commanding 77-point lead over teammate Dani Pedrosa after winning all nine races so far.
