Don’t Miss Riding Morocco: Chasing the Dakar on National Geographic

By June 17, 2016General Posts

A new film is set for worldwide release on National Geographic featuring Christophe Barriere-Varju from Multi-Award Winning film Dream Racer, and former Miss Australia and Miss Universe Australia, Laura Csortan.

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?

Riding Morocco: Chasing the Dakar is being broadcast across 170 countries worldwide, playing in Australia on the 17th of June at 10:30pm, the United States and the United Kingdom on the 18th of June.
