Marc Marquez rides title-winning Honda up ski slope in the Austrian Alps

Marc Marquez rode his MotoGP bike up a ski slope…

Honda’s leading person rode the title-winning MotoGP machine all the way up the Strief ski run at Kitzbühel in Austria in aid to promote the Hahnenkamm ski races next weekend.

His famous run last year was a major talking point, so this year’s attempt took place under complete and utter secrecy on Friday morning, the only evidence a few pictures on social media and one video.

The crew turned to Austrian ice speedway racing world champion Franz Zorn, who actually fitted the Honda’s front and rear tyre with 3cm spikes.

It looked like something from the film Mad Max.

Although it may actually have looked like it was effective, judging by the speed and engine note in the clip above. Marquez isn’t exactly messing around as he fires the world title-winning RC213V up the slope.

The presence of a proper film crew at the end of the clip and the cameras fitted under the bubble and on the tail fairing suggest there’s a proper video coming soon.
