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.
