The Repsol Honda riders challenge one another to a unique race, as they prepare for a tough second half of the MotoGP season in which the standings are closer than ever.
Marc Márquez leads the MotoGP World Championship standings following his win at Sachsenring, but things are tight at the top in the premier class. Five riders are separated by just 26 points.
For this reason, the Spanish rider and Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa are leaving nothing to chance. They have started training for photo finishes and challenged one another to a race full of speed, adrenaline and sharp reflexes… onboard lawnmowers that travel at 8km/h!
Used to reaching over 300km/h at race tracks, Márquez and Pedrosa had to show a different kind of skill when riding the 530cc, 13hp machines –a far cry from the 1000cc, over 240hp Honda RC213V.
