Marc Marquez Takes His Repsol Honda To the Slopes Of Kitzbühel

Marc Marquez is used to pushing boundaries on the track, but now he’s taken his Repsol Honda RC213V to the extremes by riding the slopes of Austria’s Kitzbühel Alps.

At just 23 years of age, the Spanish three-time MotoGP world champion has accomplished a hell of a lot, but being the first man to ever take a MotoGP machine to the slopes is just next level.

To help with the feat, his tyres were fitted with special spikes by Austrian ice speedway star, Franky Zorn, and TV ski expert, Armin Assinger.

The legendary ski run on the Hahnenkamm is considered one of the toughest on the ski world cup circuit, but for Márquez? S’no problems!

“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!”

Check out the epic stunt above.
