Guy Martin attends Rider Mania in India

He seems to spend more time on television than he does on his bike but fans’ favourite Guy Martin returns to our screens this Sunday for another adventure.

The first of a two-part documentary titled ‘Our Guy in India’ will be screened on Channel 4 at 9pm on Sunday, 1st February. The second is a week later on Sunday, 8th February.

The programme features the 33-year old Isle of Man TT star from North Lincolnshire on a 1,000 mile motorbike trip across, you’ve guessed it, India.

We see Guy buying a Royal Enfield at a Delhi market before it’s blessed in traditional Hindu style. During his two-week trip he explores the more modern side of the country, rides with a 50-strong gang, visits Asia’s biggest truck yard and heads to the top of India’s tallest building, the 833ft Imperial skyscraper in Mumbai.

The trip culminates in a visit to the three day ‘Rider Mania’ - the world's largest gathering of Royal Enfield’s – which took place in Goa at the end of November.

The Slow Race at Rider Mania  5,000 Royal Enfield enthusiasts attended

Ride Mania is a combination of competitive and general fun events including a bike carrying, arm wrestling, figure of 8 race, a slow race and a dirt track race in which the 15-times TT podium finisher Martin rides an Enfield Bullet 500.

Make sure you tune in to see how Guy gets on!
