Now we've definitely never seen anything like this before! We know motorsport stars have to get creative in the wet weather, but surfing a motorcycle across the track is truly revolutionary! Tetsuta Nagashima turned heads at the Red Bull Ring this weekend, as he briefly swapped the track for the surf!
Nagashima was on-track in practice for the Moto2 race at the Red Bull Ring as riders struggled to cope with torrential rain and slippery conditions.
As the Japanese rider lost control, a slide into the gravel trap looked a certainty, but he styled it out in the most amazing way!
With his legs still wrapped around his Honda bike, the 26-year-old managed to flip his body onto the side of his sliding machine and cruise across the Spielberg circuit.
Maybe an alternative career is calling for Nagashima! Check out the incredible clip below...
