    Default Marc Marquez rides MotoGP bike on Ski slope!

    Five time World Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) took his Honda RC213V for a spin on the snow recently in Hahnenkamm, Kitzbühel. It was a promotional event shoot for Hahnenkamm ski races, where as, last year Max Verstappen drove his Formula 1 car and for this year it was Marc Marquez. The Austrian ice speedway racing world champion Franky Zorn helped to fit 3cm spikes on tyres for thick snow.

    After an adventurous ride, Marc Marquez says, “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!”

    Wow. The guy is riding up the slope like a nut job. Feet off the pegs, getting thrown around. And all that for a PR activity! Crazy number 93

    I remain unconvinced that Marc Marquez is from another planet, trolling us unworthy humans with his other-worldly skills and prowess for fun.

    The making Of video shows you the preparations they underwent. You can also gauge the incline of the slope here:
