Race to Dakar

Sale!

n 2004 Charley Boorman completed his astonishing round the world bike trip with his friend, Ewan McGregor. The journey left him exhausted, exhilarated and hungry for a new challenge.

And what greater challenge than the Dakar Rally? Beginning in Lisbon and ending in the Senegalese capital of Dakar, the rally takes competitors through 15 000 kilometres of treacherous terrain, and is widely regarded as the most dangerous race on earth.

Charley teamed up again with producer and director Ross Malkin to set about making his dream a reality. But even after months of gruelling practice nothing can really prepare a rider for this ultimate off-road event. With his teammates Simon Pavey and Matt Hall, Charley faced temperatures that soared from below freezing to more than 54C; rode through shifting sands, rock-strewn roads and stinging winds; ad faced breakdowns miles from civilisation.

In Race to Dakar, Charley recounts his extraordinary adventures, and offers an insight into the history of the race. He also follows the stories of other riders in the rally, an eccentric, dedicated band of professionals and rookies who all dream of one thing: reaching the finishing line.

From Portugal through Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Mali, Guinea and Senegal, Race to Dakar is a thrilling adventure, and a fascinating account of a race that has captured the imagination of millions
