Metzeler To Support Round-The-World Biker


Metzeler has announced its support of both the Ace Cafe‘s ‘Overland and Adventure Day’ and Steph Jeavons‘ two-year round-the-world trip.

Jeavons will attempt to become the first British woman to travel the Globe via six continents (across 42 countries) by motorcycle. Making the trip even more impressive is her decision to avoid main roads and do the entire journey on a small trail bike Honda CRF250L.

Her jouney will begin at the ‘Overland and Adventure Day’, which will also feature seasoned travellers Sam Manicom, Lois Pryce, Austin Vince, Dom Giles and Graham Field, along with stands and displays from KTM, Jack Lilley Triump and many more.

“We are really pleased to be supporting the Ace Cafe’s Overland and Adventure Day,” said Product & Marketing Manager for Metzeler, Jim Worland. “For Metzeler, motorcycling is all about the journey and the theme of the day epitomises this. We will be on hand to talk to riders about anything tyre related and with our vast experience in extreme ‘Overland’ events such as the Dakar Rally with our Karoo Extreme tyre, supporting seasoned globetrotters such as Miguel Silvestre with the Karoo 3 and with the introduction of the new Tourance Next in 2013, we can really help when it comes to giving the right advice.”
