On Sunday 1st July UK Continental brand manager Graham Matcham joined John Mitchinson from Rally Raid Products at the KTM Centre at Hemel Hempstead to wish a fond farewell to the Continental Drift duo of Darren Higginson and David Darcy.
This epic travel adventure will be undertaken on a pair of KTM 690 Enduro bikes fitted with Continental TKC80 tyres and some special modifications from Rally Raid.
Tyres will be a critical ingredient to the success of the trip so Continental, through their international network of distributors, are pleased to be able to support the trip with tyre maintenance stops planned in Russia, Malaysia and Australia.
The Continental Drift Team both enthusiastic photographers and film makers will be recording the action on route so that others can enjoy a taste of their experiences.
It was an absolute pleasure to ride the first leg of this journey with the guys. Setting of from Hemel we wound our way through the outer suburbs of London eventually ending up close to the M25 near to Windsor. In true British tradition it started to rain so we stopped for a cup of tea.
