Chris races the latest in KTM’s Adventure range over 7 days, over all terrain apart from desert via road maps which read like symbols deciphered at speed.

Expectations aside, Chris puts paid to the adage nothing is impossible, tackling the International Rally on board the 1090cc and 228kg machine.

I caught up with Chris to film preparations before he flew to Greece, take notes on bike specs, gain some knowledge on what it takes to ride the 1090R and learn a secret he tested in field.

The most humblest guy I ever met, who has taken on board more challenges than most would even think about, it was a privilege to share this story.
