‘Dakar Dreams’ motorbike challenge and TV series
Starting on 15th March 2012, Danny John-Jules (the ‘Cat’ from Red Dwarf) and team-mate Graham Hoskins will attempt to follow one of the most iconic of motorbike routes, the 1996 Dakar Rally from Granada to Senegal. Through the Atlas mountains of Morocco, the deserts of the Western Sahara and the chaos of Mauritania, they will be filming their adventure and raising money for Riders for Health. And just because they do not like to make things too easy for themselves, their challenge will be unsupported, with only their cameraman for company (Tom Woodrow, Scooters in the Sahara).
Danny and Graham are sure to find that as with their 2010, 7,000 mile endurance challenge ‘Mad in the Med’, this adventure will really be about the amazing people they meet and the friends they make along the way.

Graham and Danny will be riding Yamaha Super Tenere’s in Danny’s outrageous trademark pink and Graham’s new canary yellow. Both bikes can be seen on the Yamaha stand at the MCN Motorcycle Show 2nd – 5th February. http://www.mcnmotorcycleshow.com
