MotoGP's Marc Márquez's personal invite to Glovo driver doing his homework by street light
08 March 2021 @ 07:50

A YOUNG man working as a Glovo delivery driver and studying under a lamp-post sitting on the pavement has attracted the attention of MotoGP whizz-kid Marc Márquez.

Six-times MotoGP world champion Marc Márquez is impressed by young Carlos' efforts

Carlos Alegre, 24, was snapped crouched on the ground in the dark with his notebook on his knees and his Glovo moped parked next to him, snatching minutes to do his homework in between delivery calls.

It turned out the youth, from Madrid, aspires to be a competition mechanic and is working hard on the theory side, but does shifts as a delivery rider in Málaga to pay the bills whilst on his course, which is based in the Costa del Sol city.

The picture was taken by Local Police officer Pedro G. Díaz, who uploaded it onto the Guardia Civil's Facebook page.

After his photo went viral, Carlos received a flood of job offers as a trainee mechanic – and may have gained a step into the world of top-flight motorcycling. 

Márquez, who became the youngest rookie in history to win a world championship at MotoGP level in 2013, aged just 20, went on to net the title every year until 2019 inclusive, except for 2015 – and may have been in with a chance of equalling his childhood hero and arch rival Valentino Rossi, with seven world championships, if he had not missed practically the whole of the 2020 season due to injury.
