MotoGP: Marquez fastest after incredible save

Published: 19 August 2016

Marc Marquez led the way in this afternoon’s second MotoGP free practice at the Brno circuit despite a huge save half way through the session.

Marquez tucked the front going into the final turn at the Czech circuit, with both wheels leaving the ground before he pulled his RC213V back up on his knee and casually rode into the pits.

The twice MotoGP champion sat ninth towards the end of the session, but a fast lap in the closing moments saw him topple Jorge Lorenzo from the top spot.
