The world champion MotoGP rider has pushed the limits of a motorcycle even further with this stunt.
Marc Marquez: Showrun in Kitzbühel
The Hahnenkamm race is the toughest contest in skiing’s World Cup. But motorcycles and snow generally don’t go together, right? Wrong.
Márquez likes pushing the boundaries, so with the help of Austrian ice speedway legend Franky Zorn – who fitted his RC213V with special tyre spikes – the triple MotoGP title holder became the first man to go up Austria’s Kitzbühel Alps on a MotoGP machine.
Watch the amazing action in the player above.
It was really difficult to keep the bike under control, but I’m young and it’s good fun to try some crazy things! We enjoyed it and we could see after a few runs everything that was possible.
“The piste was really well prepared. I could really get going and I had a great feeling out there. The grip was unbelievable, even for a wheelie!”
See for yourself as Márquez follows in the snow tracks of F1 star Max Verstappen, who did a run in his Red Bull Racing F1 car at the same spot last year.
