Marquez crosses the Thames en route to Silverstone
Today MotoGP Championship Leader, Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez, brought London to a standstill as he rode his Honda RC213V across the iconic Millennium Bridge landmark, becoming the first person to do so on a motor vehicle.

With the famous St. Paul's Cathedral as a backdrop, Marc passed over the bridge several times and concluded with a spectacular burnout on the North bank side of the river.


"It was really nice to become the first ever person to cross the Millennium Bridge on a motorbike! This event was really important for MotoGP ahead of the British Grand Prix and we were very lucky with the weather - I normally expect rain in England! So to be here in the centre of London on such a bright day, riding over the River Thames and making history was a memorable experience. The slippery metal surface of the bridge did not make it easy, but I tried to put on a good show for all the fans who came out to see us!"
