Cervera native Àlex Márquez wins Moto2 title in Malaysia
Catalan rider makes history winning title same year as brother Marc Márquez's 6th MotoGP
23-year-old Catalan rider Àlex Márquez won his first Moto2 title in Malaysia on Sunday following a closely disputed race, just weeks after his older brother Marc Márquez secured his 6th MotoGP at the Thailand Grand Prix.
Cervera native Àlex Márquez had already won the Moto3 world title in 2014, the same year that his older brother won one of his MotoGP titles, and that year they made history by being the first siblings to win world motorcycle championship titles in different categories in the same year.
This season is the second time the Catalan brothers have made history by both winning titles the same year.
Although he finished the race in second position, Àlex Márquez still came in first place in the championship with 262 points, followed by the South African rider Brad Binder in second place and the Swiss Thomas Lüthi in third.
