Marc Marquez announces the Amazon Prime documentary

trailer for Marc Marquez all inreleased on Thursday, shows the Honda rider recovering from his recent surgery earlier this year as he continued to suffer the effects of his horrific 2020 crash in Jerez.

The film documents his triumphant return, eventually scoring his 100th podium at the Australian Grand Prix.

It will be available in more than 200 countries and regions from February.

On announcing the film, Márquez wrote: “It’s been a tough journey with only one goal, to get back to the highest level. Is it worth the hard work? It’s for me. All in.”

The five-episode series is produced by the Fast Brothers in association with Red Bull Media House, TBS, and Dorna.

A press release read: “The series illustrates frontally, and with unique access so far, the personal side of Mark: the risks of having surgery and having the arm not recover, the agony of not being able to be who he was on a motorcycle, with the support of his family and friends…but Above all his ability to overcome adversity and make him feel like a rider again and get on the podium.

He also reviews some of the key moments in his career, the ones that made Marc Marquez one of the best jockeys in history.

The Spaniard badly broke his right arm at the Spanish Grand Prix in 2020, ultimately ruling him out of that entire campaign as he underwent three surgeries for the injury.

The first proved unsuccessful as he damaged a plate in his arm trying to return to racing in Jerez just days after the operation, while the second surgery resulted in an injury that stopped his arm from healing.

He had a third surgery in the winter of 2020, which kept him from the first two races of 2021 – though he would eventually return to action, winning three races that year.

A fourth surgery took place earlier this year in the United States, with Marquez returning to Aragon although he admitted he wasn’t expecting to race again in 2022.

It’s not the first Amazon project to feature MotoGP, with MotoGP Unlimited premiering in March.

The series, which covered the 2021 season, was a two-wheeler attempt at a behind-the-scenes drive-to-survive-style documentary series produced by Spanish company Mediapro.

But its release was fraught with problems, with an apparent technical issue resulting in episodes being only available in an English dub rather than an English subtitle as was originally intended.

This led to a backlash on social media, with many people calling the series unwatchable at first before Amazon patched the issue to restore the original audio track.

Although a second series had begun, filming was halted in April, while Dorna Sports – owner of the commercial rights to MotoGP – looked to do an evaluation with a view to bringing it back in 2023.
