Two adventure bikers take on the journey of a lifetime travelling through Morocco, North Africa, on the trail of the ultimate biking challenge, the Dakar Rally. One rider, Christophe Barriere-Varju, has competed in the Dakar Rally four times. The other, Laura Csortan, has never set a wheel off road before. Starting in Marrakech, Morocco, they must make their way through mountains, gorges, rivers and deserts to reach the Moroccan Sahara. Christophe will be sharing his knowledge of what it takes to be an off road adventurer whilst Laura will be pushing her biking skills to the limits and experiencing a journey like never before. Will they make it to their final destination of the Sahara Desert or will the journey of a lifetime be too much for an off road novice?
Honda announced its provision of two CRF1000L Africa Twin adventure motorcycles and production support of the National Geographic Channel-produced "Riding Morocco: Chasing the Dakar" program. Australian fashion model Laura Csortan will be joined by experienced rally rider Christophe Barriere-Varju to traverse on CRF1000L Africa Twins the course in Morocco once part of the world's most gruelling race, the Paris-Dakar Rally (now staged in South America as the Dakar Rally). On their extraordinary journey they will experience breathtakingly beautiful valleys and expansive vistas, making new friends along the way. The duo will introduce to the viewer, the bike ride of a lifetime.
Christophe will share his vast knowledge and demonstrate serious manual transmission off-road riding borne of his experience as a Paris-Dakar rider, while Laura will enjoy traversing an expansive continent on the DCT(1) model which does not require clutch operation. Their adventures, challenges, and encounters in Morocco will undoubtedly set the stage for a thoroughly entertaining program.
