Red Bull Video - Casey Stoner at 1000 fps
Tuesday, July 12, 2011
Championship points leader Casey Stoner shows how it’s done at 1000 frames-per-second in this video courtesy of Red Bull.
Stoner is a former MotoGP World Champion (2007) and leads the series by 19 points over Jorge Lorenzo this year. Slowing Stoner’s corner entry down shows how smooth and graceful the Australian rider is. Seeing it in slow motion gives you a deeper appreciation for the skills of these riders. It’s amazing to see how far he hangs off, how far the back of the bike is sliding, how close the motorcycle is to the ground.
The Red Bull Moments: Casey Stoner
video is but one of a series of 1000 fps videos Red Bull is producing which feature premier athletes in action. The timing of the video’s release couldn’t be better as the Red Bull US Grand Prix
is coming to Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway July 22-24 where you’ll be able to witness Stoner and the rest of the MotoGP paddock dragging knees at the world famous track. Until then, enjoy the Red Bull video.
