Video: drifting gymkhana

Dailies -



You’ve seen Nick Apex drift past an RX-7. You’ve seen the Japanese perform gymkhana, dragging pegs at 10mph in parking lots. But, you’ve never seen motorcycle drifting and gymkhana at the same time. Now you will. This is french stunt rider Jorian Ponomareff and he’s very, very talented.

    I saw this the past weekend and was going to send a tip, but I figured you guys would pick it up anyway.

      I was going to say this is some kinda PSA?

  • Ax

    I’m not a fan of (car) drifting and expected this video to be kinda stupid. I was very wrong. Awesome riding.

    That poor tire…

    • Sean Smith

      Right? Over-inflated and baked to a crisp. It never had a chance…

  • Will

    How did he keep his feet up the whole time? So unhesitant. Ken Block, your move.

      I’m stealing that. Thank you.

  • damien

    I feel like I just watched a moto version of that Fabric of the Cosmos show…mind blown. Wow.

    All I can say is, “Thank you Jeebus for motorcycles and slow motion footage.”

    I saw this over the weekend – dude is brilliant on that bike. I wish I had 1/3rd of that finesse breaking the back loose.
