What a beast.

He was totally slid-out and on the ground and just picked it back up. Awesome.

Marquez is a madman! He crashed 27 times this season.. He's certainly not afraid to hang it out!

One of the most talented people to ever throw a leg over a motorcycle.

He is something that motorcycle racing has never ever seen.

He could've just cruised the last part of the race but he decides to make that move on Zarco and almost goes down.

Any other rider in that situation would've crashed with a 99,9% certainty. It was jaw dropping. It was his best save in his career, the amount of speed(over 100mph) that they carry through the first corner is insane(for a 90 degree corner) and to save the front end like that should be impossible!

Zarco is going to be a big threat in 2018. Crazy save by marquez.w00t

His knee is a third wheel

Incredible when you see the guys get off at 100mph and jump up running before they have stopped sliding.

Freddie Spencer did something similar to that back in the late seventies racing the 500's. He was in the lead battling with Kenny Roberts. One difference though; Freddie didn't lose the lead.

But Marquez seems that he could never make one of his dreams, be a great MX champion.

Another one, last year.

Marquez really is the real deal. I think he could win on any type of surface on a motorcycle, he just has that desire to win at any cost. Pretty special guy, he is the continuation of Roberts, Rainey, Sheene, Schwantz and Rossi.

I don't know about "never ever seen" but what he accomplished this year considering the amount of times he ended up in the gravel is really impressive. Let's not forget about Rossi, Stoner, and Simoncelli.

That being said, the battles with Dovi in Austria and then in the wet in Japan were some of the best and most exciting racing of the year.

It was a pretty awesome year to be a MotoGP fan.

Although he didnt save it I was always impressed how hard Doohan tried to save this one at Phillip Island.

I'm pretty anti Marquez and was definitely on the Dovi train but after that save I thought 'yep he can the title that was bullshit!' haha Incredible save and like someone said above you've gotta respect the fact he could've very easily just rolled around.. Maybe I should be a fan.. I dunno.. I'm so confused haha

Yeah he's kinda hard to like in one sense and hard not too in another. Dude goes for it that's for sure.

For anyone that follows Moto GP and is familiar with the trials and tribulations of Jorge Lorenzo (particularly this year), following this page is a must. Absolute pisser and always written so well:

The big difference here is that corner 1 at Valencia is a high speed corner, corner 1 at Malaysia is low speed.

I'm still amazed when i watch these saves. It requires incredible amounts of strength and skill.

Marquez does it again at the 2018 test session.

Fair enough, but I don't think its a much of a difference given how far gone the front end was and how far he was canted over in both situation. I have no idea how he manages to re-engage the front tire in either situation; so often it either continue to wash out or (especially in the 500 smoker days) catch and throw the rear around in a highside.
