When we did the Cascade Loop Saturday we saw 3 Bikes from Costa Rica
one was a Triumph Tiger and a KTM 1190 and a African Twin! The Riders had the bikes shipped to Seattle and were riding up to Tour around Alaska.

What a pair. A former Dakar privateer and a supermodel with little off road experience.
What could go wrong?


Should be like the episode of Long-Way-Down where Ewans wife joins them for a while.. (they made it clear that Eve was a novice rider, so kudos to her for joining the guys.)

Uh, not quite. Only the women are a valid comparison...

Have you seen Dream Racer?

The ONLY comparison between Ewan/Charlie vs Christophe Barriere-Varju is that they are all males. The comparison STOPS there. I will not give it away but Christophe Barriere-Varju has more gravitas than the whole cast and crew (save Claudio) of Long Way Around! If you haven't seen it, you simply don't know what you're missing and have no idea how much of an animal Christophe Barriere-Varju is when it comes to racing. I would put him in the company of Simon Pavey if I were to compare to his sheer grit and fight-to-the-finish attitude.

You won't be disappointed in watching either though I'm certain this Nat Geo show will be much better filmed than Dreamracer, as the budget is so much bigger.

I know that Christophe is a very talented rider, which is why it's so odd that he's riding with a woman with so little experience. Australia has plenty of fast women riders, Tayla Jones, Jess Gardiner and Jemma Wilson for example.

oh.. but Laura is HOT!

^^I think you're on to something. Nat Geo figured they needed some eye candy to gain viewers.

Like watching Halle Berry in Catwomen!!! The outfit looks almost the same as that mag cover!
The 'Long Way Down' set are fun to watch. That kind of riding is a lot of work...
