Indian Motorcycle and Workhorse Speed Shop took on the extreme Baikal Mile Ice Speed Festival in late February to give Appaloosa, the highly modified Scout Bobber sprint racer, the toughest of pre-season shakedown tests for its 2020 Sultans of Sprint comeback.

In only its second running, the Baikal Mile challenged competitors to reach maximum speed with their specially prepared vehicles on the frozen surface of the deepest lake on Earth, – Lake Baikal, Siberia.

“Racing on ice is hard, this is the most incredible thing I’ve tried to do. Coming here was a huge adventure for all of us and it was all about challenging ourselves, making new friends and having fun at the same time.” – Brice Hennebert, Appaloosa Creator

“At this event there are bikes, you’ve got cars, a helicopter, a tank with a Bentley body. I mean, the craziness of the machines is just at the top level.” – Sébastien Lorentz, Appaloosa v2.0 Rider.

Closed caption subtitles are available in several languages on the video. Click the CC icon in the bottom right of the YouTube player to turn on subtitles and use the gear icon to choose your language.

Appaloosa can be followed across Indian Motorcycle social channels with the hashtag #IndianxWorkhorse.
