Seriously people - these are laughable...

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.

Yeah, or a midget on a pit-bike... (who is also a vampire as he casts no shadow!)

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...44999&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.

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...
