It’s amazing what a few snow spikes and a lot of talent can do.
It was leaked online last week, but now Red Bull have released the full, edited version of Marc Marquez running his Honda RC213V up Austria’s Kitzbühel Alps.
The Hahnenkamm race is known the toughest contest in skiing’s World Cup. So why Marquez thought it would be a good idea to race his MotoGP bike along the course is anyone’s guess…
But Márquez tends to enjoy 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.
“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!”
