Motul Stunt Championship in Sochi
The final stage of the Russian Stuntriding Championship took place in late autumn in Sochi. The season comes to an end by this time, tourists are leaving, and the weather is excellent for some stunt riding. The champion of Russia was chosen after the results of three stages, so the first and second places were already known: Foma Kalinin and Denis Rybalko. The main struggle unfolded for the third place by Nikita Pokusay and Andrei Rakshin. In addition, the Infamous Team arrived in Sochi from Poland, which increased the competition level.
Nothing surprising happened. Foma completed the qualification perfectly and the final was good, which allowed him to take the first place. Denka steadily rode the entire tournament and the second place was given to him. Of all the riders who had a chance to win, the most successful was Danila Zhelanov, who did not make any serious mistakes in the final, and took third place. In a duel for the first place at the end of the season, Andrei Rakshin, who showed a cool final ride, won.

We asked the riders to tell us about their stuntbikes and favourite stunts during the breaks:
Late autumn in Sochi is perfect timing to see some high level stuntriding. Many experienced riders come here not only to participate in the championship but also to get together and have some fun. That's the time when they are all in a good shape practicing streetkills, training at palm climbing sport and having a good time.
