Red Bull definitely could imagine it and sent MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez to prove it’s possible. Honda’s leading man rode his powerful bike up Kitzbühel’s slopes in Austria’s Alps.
Austrian ice speedway racing world champion Franz Zorn fitted the Honda’s tyres with 1,2 inches spikes. That’s how Marquez managed to accelerate the RC213V up the slope.
“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,” Marquez told.
