Kolesnikov trains for Nitro Circus Euro Tour openers
Alex Kolesnikov gets ready to start the training day in Belluno. He was there training with friends after spending time with another friend, Vanni Oddera, in Savona on the Italian Riviera. The training starts in the morning in the foam pit.
Alex Kolesnikov gets pulled out of the foam pit after trying a new trick, a backflip with a one-handed takeoff. I love this trick," he says. "But it's not easy [to get] the feeling of the ramp."
After the foam pit training in the morning, Alex gets ready to head to Daboot SuperPark, which Del Farra owns and operates. "I love to ride in this park with some different ramps and in a cool place like Belluno," says Kolesnikov.
Kolesnikov gets his goggles in place for Round 2 at the park. No more foam pits here, as he starts the engine of his Yamaha 450 four-stroke and gets ready to hit some ramps.
Alex Kolesnikov says he loves to see the world from upside down. Here, Alex lays out a huge backflip superman Indian with the Dolomites looming in the distance.
Kolesnikov rides a Yamaha 450cc four stroke with an exhaust system made in Termignoni, Italy. "I love the feeling of my bike during the jumps," he says.
