Big time in Bucha, Kyiv area, last weekend - the local track has hosted the 5th GP of FIM World Sidecarcross, perhaps the largest MX event ever in Ukraine. Monster Energy athletes Kasparas Stupelis and Etienne Bax have arrived among 30 other international teams to compete for the silverware and rip the track.
Kasparas and Etienne are super hospitable, cheerful and easy-going guys, but should we touch the topic of racing, they will expose all the discipline and ambitions they have. Finishing 1st is the only option, ‘cause being second means to be the first among the losers. That’s why #82 has got the title in 2015, and that’s why it has dominated during this weekend in Bucha, winning with an impressive 20 second lead.
We have visited their trailer-palace right before the race to have a quick chat. Below is a dialog about preparation, gear and travels of the champions. Congrats on the win!
