The Successes and Failures of Richard and John - Paris Dakar (Pilot)
As last year's failed attempt to get a yacht and sail it around Scotland just by talking to people was such an adventure, John has arranged to attempt the Dakar Rally - on motorbikes. Richard doesn't know. He thinks they are going up to Wales to entertain as Ewan and Thingy (their spoof versions of Ewan Mcgreggor and Charlie Boorman created for Comedy Central). Can John persuade him to go on another mission - one of the most dangerous rallies in the world.
