This is European supermoto ace Rudi Bauer making every other photo of cornering ever taken look totally girlie. Yes, that’s right, he’s leaning so far over that he’s dragging his handlbars, among other parts. Don’t believe this isn’t a crash? We’ve got video.
Update: high-res, wallpaper-ready image added to the gallery.
And you thought head down was good, right? Bauer is riding a Yamaha YZ450F fitted with Metzeler’s latest Racetec SM tires, which apparently facilitate some serious lean angles.
This trackside video gives you an idea of what he’s doing, but it’s really the onboard video below that will blow your mind.
