This gallery comes from the Red Bull battle on two wheels challenge between Alvaro dal Farra, famous Italian freestyler, and Ivan Lazzarini, Italian Supermotard Champion. A program was set for the riders to challenge each other in the different disciplines, after previous meetings in the Red Bull Ape Race and the Red Bull X-Kart Race.
Freestyler Alvaro has generally had the upper hand, and so Ivan had a new challenge on the supermotard circuit, lapping Alvaro more than once.
But the foam pit was the breaking point for Ivan who, after years of supermotard racing, couldn’t get the right position to lean backwards and close a back flip. Both riders apparently had a lot of fun learning new things, but there’s something about old dogs and new tricks, particularly when we’re talking slides and backflips.
