Kallio takes Azuma ice racing in Finland

Mika Kallio discovered a unique way to bond with his new team-mate, when he took Masao Azuma Ice Road Racing last week. The pair were in Kallio´s native Finland for a motorcycle exhibition in Helsinki, where they mingled with 54,000 bike enthusiasts and posed in their new Ajo Motorsport team colours aboard the Honda machines they will ride in this year´s 125cc World Championship. The pair then headed out onto a local lake for an unorthodox training session, as Kallio showed Azuma the way around a frozen lake.

Kallio put his practice to good use as he took part in a round of the Finnish Championship Ice Road Racing series this weekend, taking a clear victory in the 125cc race. The Ajo Motorsport team has now moved to slightly warmer climes in Belgium, where they will make preparations at their workshop for a private test a few days before the IRTA sessions.
