These riders have two very different ideas about the meaning of horsepower. Watch MotoGP World Champion motocross racer Marc Marquez go up against PRCA barrel racer Jack Ganter.

On April 22, Marc Marquez was the one to watch at the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas in Austin, Texas. He was there as the reigning MotoGP World Champion to defend his title (which he did, earning his fifth win!) But on the eve of the big event, Marquez found himself focused on a different course. While in town for the Grand Prix, Marquez met up with PRCA cowgirl Jackie Ganter at the Dripping Springs Ranch outside of Austin to learn about the sport of barrel racing — and to see if he could earn a faster time rounding the barrels on his bike than she could on her horse.
