Official press release:
Stunt, samba, football and passion for bikes
Rok Bagoros, famous KTM stunt rider recently visited Brazil, where he shoot his latest video where you will see that it is possible to dance also in the rhythm of samba with a motorcycle!
The biggest South American country is known among the hard core fans as a cradle of stunt riding. The legendary AC Farias is a famous godfather of stunt riding, who invented riding in circles and brought fresh tricks from BMX to motorcycling world. Among that he was also an inspiration for spectators and all recent stunt riding stars, including young Rok Bagoros.
‘When I realized that I will travel to Brazil as and KTM Duke 200 ambassador and perform in ‘Salao Duas Rodas’, the biggest motorcycle show in South America, I knew I had to do something special. So I didn’t hesitate and borrow some tricks that I learned with my Trials bike. Jumping from a height with Trial bike doesn’t sounds special, but do it with a street motorcycle and the story is much more extreme. I must admit that I felt some butterflies when I approached the jump for the first time. And when I did it, I enjoyed it so much I had to repeat it at least ten more times. The streets of Sao Paulo are amazing, so I took a ride around it, did some steep ‘downhill style’ stairs descents and fooled around with guys playing football. Man that’s amazing what people on the streets in Brazil can do with a football ball. They share the same passion for their sport as I do for my sport. Respect!
During his trip in Brazil Rok also invited local motorcyclist to hang around with him and to join for a group ride: ‘This people are truly amazing. We were really big group on motorbikes and. I was so impressed about the scene there, truly inspiring. And when I asked what motorcycling means to them, they were clear, passion!’
The video was shoot and edited by Head Lens media, a Slovenian team of young and creative filmmakers. Enjoy the passion!
