    Nice stunts by Coma. Proves fear of heights is not a subject for pro Rally riders.
    Soon parachutes wil be part of the regulatory kit package:rofl.

    Not too sure about the photoshop. Coma's bike was in Dubai at the time, Ronnie Renner was too. A mate of ours (yes a sandy helmet) took him into the desert to play around. Will check if Coma's bike also came out for a spin.

    the bigger photos look nice and don't look like bad adobe edits
    so I will disagree with Jenny, if they were shopped the person who did it has some skills
    I had no idea Coma could do a nice can can like that:eek1

    seriously jumping big I had no doubt Coma could do
    but a freestyle move like that was not expected at all


    eventhough it could be Renner in Marc's gear...but I don't know if it would fit.


    very cool

    I agree with Jenny here. This must be a very creative photo-montage - or a full-fledged FMX stand-in with Coma apparel doing the stunts. :rofl

    So KTM Racing want to bolster Marc Comas reputation as mr. SuperMan. I don't doubt for a second he's capable of flying a bike reasonably high. However, I'd very much like to see some real video footage of him doing that stunt. It's just SO out of his character to perform that kinda flying in public.

    KTM Racing obviously have some sense of humour and use well-known PR tricks.

    FMX4ever meets KTM Racing:
    https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150174501660665&oid=21573544999&comments

    Goes to show there has been interaction between FMX and KTM Racing.
    Given the camera resources available - at KTM Racing will etc. - it's a bit strange they don't show some actual footage of Coma doing those stunts.

    To me it simply looks like they either manipulated the photo's or dressed up a pro FMX rider in Coma apparel and did the shooting on a 450 Rally with appropriately little fuel in the tanks..

    In these days of well-known film-tricks a sceptical and critical audience won't be easily fooled. :evil

    Here's the same set I saw being passed around in regular email. I think I have to agree and call "Chop!" but Coma probaly can huck it like that if he wants to I would guess...
