With the MotoGP season kicking off this weekend in Qatar, we’re browsing back and forth between our usual beat and the on-road happenings from the other side of the world. While looking through lap times, we stumbled upon this rad video of Loris Baz shot during the offseason. As we mentioned a few weeks ago, riders are limited to select tests with their full race machines, so dirt bikes have become a preferred tool thanks to the versatility¬†for dirt track training for riders like Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi. Well, this sure isn’t dirt track.

Well, this sure isn’t dirt track. Baz, a French rider with¬†Reale Avintia Racing, blasted around the icy mountains of Europe for this video and his skill on the slick roads is exceptional. If Baz puts in a solid result at the opening round, then maybe more racers will follow suit with this practice method.
