Repsol Honda Team preparations complete ahead of Qatar Test

The 2019 MotoGP™ World Championship season is less than a month away and now the final #test in Qatar awaits.

With #marcmarquez joined by #jorgelorenzo, 2019 is a significant year for the Repsol #Honda Team and to commemorate this, the curtain is being lifted to reveal what goes on in the build up to a world championship campaign.

As multiple World Champions, #marcmarquez and #jorgelorenzo prepare for every aspect of their lives with perfect precision. From training to their testing plans, everything is laid out in perfect detail and this extends to the traditional pre-season photo shoot, the truest sign that the season is about to begin. Today we see how they both prepare for the photo shoot and approach it with their usual professionalism.

Now that the pictures have been taken care of, #marcmarquez will resume pre-season testing at the Losail International Circuit, February 23 – 25. Since the Sepang #test the reigning World Champion has continued his intense physiotherapy programme to continue improving the condition of his shoulder.

The Qatar #test also marks Jorge Lorenzo’s return to action, the five-time champion missing Sepang to focus on recovering from a broken scaphoid in his left wrist.
