Marquez relieved with podium after crash filled weekend

  Marquez relieved with podium after crash filled weekend Marc Marquez was happy with his second place at Catalunya after what was a tough weekend for the triple world champion. Marquez suffered five crashes over the entire weekend, so was short of confidence going into the race. However, he was able to turn it around and gain a credible second place. Marquez spoke about the mental toughness needed after so many setbacks over the entire weekend. “I’m really happy with how this weekend ended because with five crashes, four yesterday and one this morning, the situation was quite tough mentally. Anyway, my team helped me a lot to regain confidence in myself and in the bike. Before the race, I said to myself that I was the same Marc as last year and that my style is to always keep pushing and never give up, something I think makes the difference sometimes.” Marquez is still optimistic about his championship chances, even after a few tough weekends. He’ll be hoping to get back on the top step of the podium at Assen in two weeks time. “The Championship is kind of a rollercoaster so we don’t really know what to expect from race to race. We must only think about ourselves, keep the concentration high, and try and give 100%.

"The expectation is always there and the matches we'll face in the ICC are all big ones. It's very good for the younger players to come into this type of competition in terms of preparing to be a Manchester United player.

"The preparation to play in games as big as that can be started in pre-season tournaments like the ICC, which is fantastic."

United's game against Real Madrid in 2014 attracted a record crowd for a football match in the US, with 109,318 in attendance for the friendly fixture and Ferguson expects fans to come out in big numbers again this summer.

"Every time we come to the States we get a full house and that tells you everything," Ferguson added.
