French trials legend Julien Dupont's latest adventure finds him riding lunar landscapes in Greece.
Considering it’s in orbit 238,900 miles away and the fact that the last time a man set foot on the lunar surface was during the early ‘70s, the moon seemed a bit of a stretch. Instead, the French rider looked for locations with surfaces that were similar the moon. The search ended with Sarakiniko Beach.
Located on the north shore of Milos Island, a Greek isle in the Aegean Sea, Sarkiniko Beach is known for its rocky surfaces and geological formations that are all blanched in a lunar white. The locals refer to it as the moon.
“If we cannot go to the moon,” explains Julien Dupont. “We will bring the moon to us.”
For a consolation location, we think the results of his latest motorcycle adventure are out of this world. So much, we’re over the moon.
