So, you think your wheelies are pretty good? Or your stoppies? Well, think again. Arttu Stenberg is from Finland and can make his KTM 450 EXC dance. In this video, he shows off some of his chops and also shows us how to go through a rear tyre in no time at all.
Arttu Stenberg Shows What Real Stunt Riding Skill Is
Motorcycle sport is chock full of incredible athletes performing unbelievable feats on their motorcycles. From MotoGP to the Dakar Rally, to MX and Enduro, to foot-up trials, to flat track racing, these men and women are possessed of other-worldly talent that the mere mortals among us can only dream about possessing.
Even when you take competition out of the equation, there are some skills on display that defy belief. One guy who is taking his particular discipline to another level is Finnish rider Arttu Stenberg. In this latest video, he puts his KTM 450 EXC through its paces with some fantastic stunts that mark him out as one to watch in the future.
What comes across most of all in the video is just the fun Arttu is having; it’s a joyous display of control while he plays around and ruins a rear tyre!
But the best thing about the video is that it is warts and all; it shows Arttu getting it wrong and shows that the making of a video such as this isn’t simply one take and that even the best get it wrong. There’s one priceless moment where he loses it and climbs off the bike, only for the bike to carry on - upright - under its own steam, whereupon Arttu runs after it and jumps back on before it disappears into the bushes.
If ever there were five minutes that showed you how bad your bike control is, then this might be it!
