Marc Marquez announces Amazon Prime documentary

The trailer for Marc Marquez All Inreleased on Thursday, shows the Honda rider recovering from his latest operation last year as he continues to suffer the effects of his horrific 2020 crash at Jerez.

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

It will be available in over 200 countries and territories from February.

Announcing the film, Marquez wrote: “It’s been a tough journey with only one goal, to get back at the highest level. Is it worth the hard work? It is for me. ALL IN.”

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

A press release said: “The series portrays in a face-to-face manner, and with unique access to date, the most personal part of Marc: the risks of surgery and the arm that did not heal, the suffering of not being who he is on a motorcycle, the support of his family and friends … but above all his ability to overcome adversity and the excitement of feeling like a rider again and stepping on the podium.

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

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

The first proved unsuccessful as he damaged the plate in his arm attempting to return to racing in Jerez a few days after the operation, while operation number two led to an infection that stopped his arm from recovering.

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

The fourth operation came earlier this year in the US, with Marquez returning to Aragon despite admitting he did not expect to race again in 2022.

This isn’t Amazon’s first project featuring MotoGP, with MotoGP Unlimited premiering in March.

The series, which covers the 2021 season, is the two-wheeled championship’s attempt in a Drive To Survive-style behind-the-scenes docuseries produced by the Spanish company Mediapro.

But its launch was fraught with issues, with an apparent technical issue leading to episodes only being available in English dub instead of English subtitles as originally intended.

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

Despite a second series being commissioned, filming was halted in April while Dorna Sports – MotoGP’s commercial rights holder – looked to take stock for a potential return in 2023.
