WRC on skis? Watch this rapid mountain descent
Downhill skier Aksel Lund Svindal and WRC star Andreas Mikkelsen burn rubber in their native Norway, in Lysevegen road.
When it comes to competition for fellow Norwegians Aksel Lund Svindal and Andreas Mikkelsen time is of the essence. Beating the clock has helped Svindal become one of the most decorated alpine skiers of all time, while Mikkelsen is one of the WRC’s brightest prospects for future success.
Their need for speed was put to the test when the duo teamed up for a very special mission – could they come down the mountain in time to catch the last ferry of the day leaving Lyseveien? Watch the above clip to see Svindal jump every obstacle in his path, while Mikkelsen throws his VW Polo R WRC into each turn on the perilous snow-banked path.
