Snow way! Marquez hits the slopes on his Repsol Honda

Updated: 

Marc Marquez has earned a reputation as a man who loves to push the boundaries in MotoGP and he lived up to that billing by taking his Repsol Honda for an exciting spin on the slopes.

Snow and motorbikes are not necessarily an ideal mix, but that did not stop the three-time world champion from taking to the famous Hahnenkamm mountain near Kitzbuhel.

The Spaniard's 93 bike was fitted with snow spikes and Marquez received friendly advice from ice speedway great Franky Zorn and skier turned television pundit Armin Assinger.

Speaking about the experience in quotes reported by MotoGP's official website, Marquez said: "It was really difficult to keep the bike under control, but I'm young and it's good fun to try some crazy things!

"We enjoyed it, and we could see after a few runs everything that was possible.

"The piste was really well prepared. I could really get going and I had a great feeling out there. The grip was unbelievable, even for a wheelie!"
