This weekend marks the last triple-header MotoGP round of the 2020 championship season which will be in Valencia and Portimao. Repsol Honda has confirmed that their star rider, Marc Marquez, will not be returning to his beloved Honda RC213V this weekend and maybe, the rest of the season.
News has circulating regarding Stefan Bradl taking his place for the remainder of the 2020 season, but there are also other indicators pointing towards the sign of his return next weekend at the same track in Valencia.
It is clear that Repsol Honda wants their world champion to heal fully before there’s any attempt to get back on the physically-demanding Honda MotoGP machinery. While we know that Marquez has been keeping fit by hitting the gym, there have been no photos or videos of him riding anything anywhere since his injury and surgeries.

The final round of the season will commence from 20-22 November 2020 where all the riders will be on the same playing field to the newly added track and Marc Marquez can only hope to be there in time to race. For now, we can only confirm that the two Valencia rounds are out of the question for the defending champion.
