French star Johann Zarco will have huge home support at Le Mans Sunday as he attempts to claim a first MotoGP win and dent Marc Marquez's quest for a fifth title.Last year's MotoGP rookie of the year has Marquez firmly in his crosshairs in this season's championship standings.Runner-up finishes in Argentina and last time out in Spain sees Zarco lying second in the MotoGP standings, only 12 points shy of Marquez.Marquez has not enjoyed the best of luck at Le Mans, Honda's Spanish rider failing to finish and coming in 13th on his last two visits.Nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi, placed sixth in the standings, will be praying for better luck than 12 months ago when he was destined to follow his Yamaha teammate Vinales home in second only to crash on the final lap.
