MUMBAI: National Geographic Channel (NGC) has announced partnership with Honda, to produce the thrilling new adventure series Riding Morocco: Chasing The Dakar. The 60 minute special follows professional racer Christophe Barriere-Varju and model-adventurer Laura Csortan as they go on a unique motor biking tour across Africa using Honda Africa Twin bikes. Riding Morocco: Chasing The Dakar premieres globally on NGC this month.  In India, it will premiere on 17 June, 2016.

Co-presenters Barriere-Varju and Csortan will be taking the ultimate biking tour in Riding Morocco: Chasing The Dakar, seeing enigmatic parts of Africa that are off the well-worn tourist trails. They will take audiences to historical sites hidden deep in the desert as well as gorgeous, untouched oases towns, meeting a variety of personalities, from tribesmen and silver miners to astronauts preparing for a space mission. Bringing their own supplies, Barriere-Varju and Csortan will travel through every imaginable extreme—freezing nights and blazing mid-day sun, large sand dunes, mountains and valleys—to test their personal limits and experience all of Africa’s hidden terrain and cultures along the ride of a lifetime.

The channel claims that Barriere-Varju is the perfect presenter for Riding Morocco: Chasing The Dakar, having ridden both the African and South American versions of the Dakar Rally, an annual off-road endurance event that has tested the most experienced drivers in the world. He brings this racing experience to the fore in the show, calling on it to navigate and handle the various types of rugged terrain that Africa has in store for the riders. Csortan is an experienced presenter and model who is also a racing enthusiast, having been a panellist on Grand Prix TV. She became the face of The Australian Moto GP in 2008 and travelled the world for seven years presenting the Australian travel show The Great Outdoors. It’s her love for adventure and racing that viewers will relate to upon seeing their journey unfold. Not only will Barriere-Varju and Csortan reveal the hidden stories of Africa and get to know themselves better in Riding Morocco: Chasing The Dakar, but their completion of the ride also spells a victory for the human spirit.

NGC Regional Production & Development for APAC and Middle East VC MayYi Lee said, "We're excited to have partnered with Honda on this ambitious television programme that fulfils the human need for exploration and uncovers a fascinating side of Africa. Viewers must tune in to Riding Morocco: Chasing The Dakar to witness Barriere-Varju and Csortan’s ultimate biking expedition and learn what extremes true adventurers will endure for the sake of self-discovery and making history. NGC is committed to continue producing quality programming that promotes the values of knowing more about the world and driving it forward."
