Coma FMX?

Uuuh... I have no idea where is the best place to put this so this will have to do. This just popped up on my Facebook, the guy on the ground is Ronnie Renner but who is on the rally bike. Is that Marc Coma!?

Seriously... there are at least three if not four different parts in that 'picture'... (maybe more!)

Proportions, perspective, lighting, colours, shadows... all wrong...

Nevermind there would also have to have been a bloody big ramp!!!

No 'chop according to the official newsletter:

Marc Coma - FMX-Hero Renner - Desert Jump
Rally Bike takes great leap - Role exchange in the desert.



Two-wheeled summit meeting in endless desert - KTM rider Marc Coma (Spain) - Freestyle Motocross star Ronnie Renner (USA) - Freestyle spirit on original Dakar-Rally bike - three-time Dakar winner Coma takes off in dunes - Arab Gulf.

ABU DHABI/DUBAI (United Arab Emirates) - Just days after his fifth triumph at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, Marc Coma demonstrated that he has brilliant control of his KTM 450 not only while racing at speeds of up to 170 km/h. Under the watchful eye of Freestyle Motocross athlete Ronnie Renner (USA), Coma made a daring 15-meter long and 6-meter high jump on his 140-kg Rally bike in the eternal desert between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The three-time Dakar winner (2006, 2009, 2011) said: "Normally, for us the important thing is keeping the bike in contact with the ground. The speed is what matters. That's why it's not usual for Rally riders to be jumping these heights and distances. Compared to a Freestyle bike, my bike weighs about a dozen kilos more than this. The tank alone can hold 40 liters."

X-Games gold medal winner Ronnie Renner paid his respects to Coma: "That was really an eye-opener! I was able to take a spin on Marc's bike and I've got to admit I must have looked pretty awful. The speed is incredible and the handling compared to a Freestyle bike is extremely hard. Taking this jump on a KTM Rally bike is phenomenal."

Marc Coma (ESP): Marc Coma won the Rally Dakar three times in 2006, 2009 and 2011 on his KTM motorcycle and was the World Champion in the Rallies Cross Country Motorcycles Tournament in 2005, 2006 and 2007. He has won nearly every important Rally in the world, including the UAE Desert Challenge five times as well as the Rallye des Pharaons (Egypt), Rally ORPI of Morocco or the Rally of las Pampas in Argentina.

Ronnie Renner (USA): Ronnie Renner is a U.S. freestyle motocross athlete. The king of the air's career highlights include winning a gold medal at the X-Games, setting a world record for a step-up on a motorcycle and setting the world record for the highest jump (Air) in a quarterpipe.

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.

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

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

There's some video of Coma, Faria, Renner and Verburgh here:

I'm sure Coma could play around on a Motocross bike but FMX on the rally bike is not happening anytime soon.
