Freestyle Motorcycle Stunts

Julien Welsch (RazerBack) continues to impress the world of motorcycle stunt riders with his feats aboard the Triumph 675 Triple. Here’s his latest creation on his own YouTube channel, The Secret Tapes: Julien Welsch.

In this video, the 25-year-old French sportbike freestyle rider performs stunts aboard the Triumph in various locations throughout France.

Following is an interview from Weslch’s sponsor, Shift:

Q. What do you do?

Julien Welsch: I’ve been a full time professional stunt rider for 1 year now. I love all extreme sports, but for sure riding motorcycles is my favorite. I do some off-road riding to keep things interesting but the majority of my time is spent in empty parking lots working hard to become better and better at my runs. I also have been working on gymnastics to improve my overall balance as well as learning front and back flips off of my bike. General fitness is important for any sport so I run every morning for 30 minutes to stay on point.

Q. Where do you do it?

Julien Welsch: I ride in Lyon alone now. All my friends stopped riding, so I’m just out there pushing myself to become better. When I’m not practicing, I put on shows and compete in France and Europe. I’m going to Poland 3-4 times this year as well to practice with Rafal Pasierbek (Stunter 13). We train hard and really push each other so it’s really good for my riding and it’s always fun to visit different places and meet new people. I also enjoyed visiting the USA last year and hope to come over again in 2011 to compete in an XDL event on my Triumph!

Q. When do you do it?

Julien Welsch: I ride everyday, usually 1-2 hours in the morning and another 1-2 hours in the afternoon but the weather has been really bad this year (rain, cold, snow) so I had to stop riding for 3 weeks.

Q. Why do you do it?

Julien Welsch: I love to ride, I love to train hard, and I love learning new tricks and competing!

Q. How do you do it?

Julien Welsch: On a Triumph Street Tripe 675! I’ve been riding for a long time now and was bored with my Honda F4i and Kawasaki 636, so riding the Triumph is great. It’s a new challenge and such a cool and exclusive bike, and the sound is just amazing.
