Marc Marquez can do almost no wrong these days.
As documented Monday at Soup, Repsol Honda rookie Marquez showed incredible speed - and an abnormal amount of joy for a factory rider - while leading all three days of the Honda-Yamaha test last week at Austin. He quickly has ascended from a wunderkind who is a candidate to win a race this season to a kid who seems almost predestined to stand atop the podium this year and could mount a title challenge.
Marquez also showed a very human side Tuesday by visiting sick children in a Barcelona hospital. He donated 500 copies of the book about his Moto2 championship season, "Magic Hands," for a fundraiser for the children's wing of the hospital.
Copies of the book will be sold to the general public for a minimum donation of $25, with all proceeds going to the hospital. Fire up Google Translate - unless you're fluent in Catalan - and visit www.capsetasolidaria.org for more information.
