Dani Pedrosa And Marc Marquez Playing On Trials Bikes – Video
An under appreciated pocket of our sport, trials riding is some of the most difficult there is. Combining balance, grace, and visual awareness — along with deft clutch and throttle hands — riding a trials bike is hard. Here Repsol Honda MotoGP riders Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez try their hands at it with the help of two of the best in the world: Toni Bui, world champion many times over, and his Repsol teammate Takahisa Fujinami.
Granted, Toni and Taka do most of the acrobatic tricks in this video, but you can catch glimpses of Marquez and Pedrosa jumping over a rock here and there. Maybe it’s just me, but if you look closely, Pedrosa seems to be entirely uncomfortable in this environment while Marquez is trying his best to give it a go. Meanwhile, the two pros are leaping over gaps, climbing over boulders, and spinning the entire time.
Thanks for the video, Repsol, and kudos on the cool aerial footage.
