KICKASS, KEVIN GALLAS

PHO­TOG­RA­PHY BY HILA TIBERIU/RED BULL

Motorcyclist - - Framed -

Top-level en­duro rid­ers for­sake tech­no­log­i­cal trap­pings for an un­com­pli­cated world that will al­ways be more about the rider than the ma­chine. Sub­jected to the rig­ors of a hard en­duro, once im­mac­u­late two-stroke dirt bikes be­come lit­tle more than pre­mix-lubed ham­mers to pound and lug over rocks. It’s de­ter­mi­na­tion, strength, tightrope­walk­ing bal­ance, and a knack for nav­i­ga­tion that make the build­ing blocks of a com­pe­tent hard en­duro spe­cial­ist. Here, at the 2017 run­ning of Ro­ma­ni­acs, Ger­man rider Kevin Gallas dips into the re­serves of tough­ness that he’ll call upon to se­cure the 2018 FIM Su­per En­duro Ju­nior World Cham­pi­onship.
