Entering the 2014 MotoGP season, there was no denying that Marc Marquez was the rider to beat with a large target planted firmly on his chest. Since winning the 2013 World Championship last year at just 20-years old and becoming the youngest MotoGP World Champion in the sport’s history, the only thing Marquez’s opponents have been able to see is his back.
