I think the second rider (who didn't do the jump) IS Marc Coma... don't know who the first guy is, but presumably one of the Red Bull sponsored X-fighter riders?

The impression I get [not speaking Spanish] is that after the parade lap (which presumably is Marc) they bluff it's Marc doing the jump, and then the real Marc comes back out to pay homage to the awesomeness that is back-flipping a rally bike...

I don't think so 'duke... I mean, look at the crowd in the stands; there's no way that the could have screened the entire public for possesion of aluminium foil hats... is there?!

And Marc's liason time down in the "nutralization stage" tunnel... before he made the jump... well that seemed a bit excessive to me also... We'll have to get the irritrack logs and see what they recorded.











NOTE: viewers this is SATIRE*... if in doubt of what the term means, "google" it.

Hee hee - well, Norway did ask who the two guys at the end were?!

I was going to say that "the Moustachio'd Man would have no problem blending into that crowd", but that might be construed as a Top Gear-ism...

Ahem.

I as well was wondering how to approach the fact that A LOT of the folks in the crowd are sporting a mustache....not implying anything, just saying......

They're probably all in cahoots.

My thoughts exactly. Ronnie Renner or some other Coma-clad FMX-dude is doing the jumps, while Coma comes out afterwards and applauds this FMX-rider doing the stunt.

Nice try, KTM - but no banana
