Snow Quake: the coldest race in the world on two wheels

Studded wheels and ice. These are the keywords of the Snow Quake. Pirelli, Sideburn and Deus Ex Machina have devised a very special race, with a route that unfurls amid the peaks of the Alps. The race features flat track, vintage scrambler and enduro bikes, homemade studded tyres, ice-covered roads and a burning passion for the most thrilling sports event ever. To make the race even more special, Marco Belli, and his incredible acrobatic skills took part in the event: the discipline-champion in Italy and North-America rode a stripped-down Yamaha XJR1300Racer, fitted with custom tyres designed by Pirelli for the occasion, a development of their famous off-road SCORPION™ Rally model. The presence of world-famous customiser El Solitario – a real icon in his field – was also a highlight of the day. A new concept of racing and racing surfaces; where the technical world meets the natural environment of the Alps for a truly unique event. Pirelli Alagna Snow Quake
