The Yamaha rider said he did not go out on the track during the week: “If I switched from the R1 to the M1, I would lose myself. I prefer to follow my routine, ride motocross and train physically”
Each race weekend is a real endurance test for the riders. The bikes, in fact, present a high bill for the physique, called to manage a considerable power and a demanding ride. For this reason, weekly training takes on great importance. However, there are also different ideas based on the type of preparation. For example, many try to alternate motocross with asphalt practice. Fabio Quartararo does not fall into this category. In fact, the Yamaha Frenchman has a different approach.
QUARTARARO AND THE CROSS
The talent born in 1999 shows that he has very clear ideas on this issue, as he explained to Motorsport-Total: “It wouldn’t take me anywhere to ride on the track. I don’t like it because it’s something completely different than MotoGP. If I switched from the R1 to the M1, I’d lose myself. From my point of view it’s too big a difference and for this reason I don’t I like to practice like this. The tires are different, the bike is different. I prefer to follow my routine, ride motocross and train physically. “
Fabio’s choice was not immediately accepted by Yamaha. Suffice it to say that, in winter, after passing Covid, the Frenchman wanted to get back on the saddle immediately. An idea unwelcome by the Iwata house, which, on the other hand, would have preferred a sport that is less harsh for the body. The facts, however, proved Quartararo right.
In addition to practicing on two wheels, Fabio takes great care of physical preparation with other exercises. For example, he is truly formidable at jumping rope, with remarkable coordination. And then his Instagram stories tell of an indefatigable athlete, a lover of running, who practices every day to keep himself toned. Moreover, when the opportunity arises, Fabio does not hold back to practice surfing, even in its electric version. In short, discipline and imagination.
