Guy Martin Sets Out for 1000-Mile Indian Adventure, Everything will be on TV – Video

TV is not a new thing for Isle of Man star Guy Martin, and the British rider is back on the tele with another two-part documentary. “Our Guy in India” is Channel 4’s latest creation and it has Guy Martin on a thousand-mile (1600 km) trip around the sub-continent, riding in a bike gang, sleeping where and how it will be possible, and racing in the Rider Mania event, the world’s largest Royal Enfield rally.

This adventure will take around two weeks, and will blend in riding motorcycles, mechanical repairs, sightseeing, tea and some daredevil risk taking, as Channel 4 seems to describe the whole thing. And since you probably raised an eyebrow when we mentioned repairs, we must add that we were not thinking about bikes breaking down along the road and their repairs. Guy Martin himself insisted in visiting the largest truck repair site in all Asia

A rider, daredevil, mechanic and lifelover

Aside from riding in races such as the Isle of Man TT, North West 200 or the Ulster Grand Prix, Guy Martin is a passionate mechanic and spends a lot of time repairing all sorts of vehicles. At the same time, he’s not afraid to take a walk on the wild side of life, so you should not be surprised to see him racing in the maddest events he can find…

Which is exactly what he will do, as he plans to take part in the Rider Mania, a huge event which gathered more than 3,700 confirmed entries for the 2014 edition, and which is of course, expected to even more thank to such publicity. You probably don’t need us to tell you that Martin won the 500cc class, as he said he would…

With 15 TT podiums to his name but yet without a single victory in any of the races around the Mountain, Guy Martin seems to never lose his passion for life, and is becoming a more and more prominent face in the British media, with 5 shows already aired on Channel 4 and seemingly many more to come. Our Guy in India airs on February 1st at 9 pm local time on Channel 4, with on-demand online options as well.
