After 27 hours of travel, FMX rider Drake McElroy goes inside the Great Pyramids of Giza with fellow rider Robbie Maddison. He then gets some much needed air as he tries to use his dirt bike skills on a rogue camel. After the Pyramids, Drake cruises the Nile and learns to play the oud. He also tries his bartering skills at the historic Khan el-Khalili Bazaar. Itching to see Cairo on two wheels, Drake takes a tour of the city on a motorcycle and finishes the day at the world-famous El Fishawy coffee house.
Drake’s Passage takes viewers to iconic cities around the world and showcases them through the eyes of Drake McElroy, one of the most stylish, cultured and respected riders in the freestyle motocross world.
As a judge for the Red Bull X-Fighters freestyle motocross world tour, McElroy visits several amazing locations where the competitions are held, including Mexico City, Cairo, Madrid, Moscow, London and Rome. While on the road, there is no such thing as downtime. When he’s not in the judging booth, Drake hits the streets to see what some of the world’s largest and most dynamic cities have to offer. He explores what makes each location unique, including art, music, food and sports, as well as venturing off the beaten path.
In addition to soaking in the local flavor, McElroy immerses himself in the culture of motorcycles in each country, where despite their cultural differences, riders share one common bond – the love of the motorcycle.
