MotoGP stars are well known for swapping horsepower for pedal power as part of their training - Brits Cal Crutchlow and Scott Redding are especially fond of cycling. But it turns out it also works the other way, with pro downhill mountain bike racers taking to the motocross track to stay sharp over winter.


With that in mind Husqvarna invited some of the top downhill riders in the world - the likes of Danny Hart and Aaron Gwin - for a day of motocross at Apex Motocross, Worcester.

As you'll see in the video above, they're pretty handy around a motocross track.
