First physio, then the exercise bike and now, finally, running. Marc Marquez is gradually resuming his training. He still wears a brace on his right arm to prevent any movement, but the Spaniard appears to be on the road to recovery.
Marquez runs... towards his return
A return that is still shrouded in mystery if truth be told. No one has talked about it, neither him nor Honda. What has been said that is that, following his latest check-up at the hospital of Madrid, it seems that Marquez’s arm infection is clearing up.
While the most sceptical talk about a fourth surgery, it is the rider himself that brings a little positivity to the Honda camp, and particularly the Marquez camp. Today Marc posted a picture of himself after a run, and the recovery-related hashtags he used included one in particular, #preseason.
Is the Spaniard providing a clue? Who knows, but various riders and friends want to see him back on track. These include enduro rider Josep Garcia who has encouraged him, Petronas rider Fabio Quartararo, but also former Honda team manager Livio Suppo, Marco Melandri and Toni Elias.

A light at the end of the tunnel?
The last post Marc Marquez had published in relation to running dates back to 15 September 2020 when, six weeks after his second surgery, he had resumed his training. It was a gradual process back then too, from rehabilitation with a physio, to running, cycling and eventually weight lifting with both arms.
Of course, this time the Spaniard will take more care and a more cautious approach, but the light at the end of the tunnel does appear to be shining a little brighter.
