Marc Marquez sends a positive message re his return to the track, but the recovery process appears anything but brief. Today, the Spaniard told his fans that he’s now resumed training, with the exercise bike at home, but the brace (unfortunately) remains firmly in place on his right arm.

He's keen but is not there physically

A situation that is in line with the latest official update on Marc’s condition, issued a few days ago, in which his clinical condition is deemed positive, but no date as to a possible return is provided. The Spaniard is clearly keen to train and return, but his right humerus is not in agreement it seems.

Will the eight-time champ be back in time for the start of the season? It currently looks difficult if not impossible, so much so that rumours abound as to a possible substitute rider. Only time will tell.
