Details

Where it all begins!  Austin Vince's seminal adventure motorcycling tv series following 7 amateur riders as they attempt to ride around the world, by the longest possible route, in the shortest possible time (on DR350's so that would be quite a long time). More British than a union jack painted bulldog! 

When Mondo Enduro was conceived in the winter of 1992 it seemed like a substantial challenge to those involved. It was only in the few months before departure (spring 1995) that the possibly greater challenge of filming it was seriously considered. None of the seven riders had any experience of shooting or directing and of course, none of them were used to being in front of the camera. And indeed, what camera?

After various call it became clear that as 'members of the public' the notional adventures of Mondo Enduro held zero interest to the TV establishment. Around the same time, Austin and Gerald's mum and dad had bought a fancy but chunky video camera; the Sony VX-1, the first ever Hi8 camera. The Vince parents' had found the VX-1 a touch 'new fangled' and gladly sold it on to the Mondo team. In many respects it is this single fact that made the Mondo Enduro show possible.

This was the first time that amateurs were able to record their adventures to a high quality but on a low budget and hence, this DVD is in some small way at the vanguard of reality TV. The pivotal VX-1 camera was augmented with a truly miniature super 8 camera and a 1970s microphone from a car boot sale. Thusly equipped the team shot 21 hours of video and 52 minutes of cine film over the next 400 days. How it ever got onto the Discovery Channel thereafter, is indeed, another story...

    The beating heart of adventure motorcycling Review by Replicant
    The beating heart of adventure motorcycling" by , written on 4 May 2017
    I remember seeing this on the Discovery channel many moons ago on a boring Sunday in rural Sussex. I was hooked.

    Yes its a bit clunky and not the most professional of films. However, this only adds to its charm and the budget DIY ethos.

    Charlie and Ewan got all the glory but this DVD is the real beating heart of adventure motorcycling.

    Lets go.....MONDO ENDURO!

    The DVD made it faster from England to California than I could organize a movie night with my riding buddies! Thanks for shipping it so quickly!

    Even though it's a British PAL formatted DVD it played fine on my American laptop, because I used the free movie player called VLC Media Player.

    I really enjoyed watching Mondo Enduro! The riders were very charming and goofy. The documentary was a delight to watch and it showed me that I need to learn how to repair a broken chain before I hit the road (and to bring tools too).

    I realized that I missed the hour of extras on the DVD! I am so excited- that means I get to watch more of Mondo Enduro!

    No movie stars here! Austin Vince, film producer/ maker and keen motorcyclist gathers six like minded souls on a motorcycling trip of a lifetime. Riding across the America's, Africa and Europe on a budget, this is Adventure travel in the raw- no support vehicles, no sponsorship or free bikes. This isn't the worlds most famous motorcycle TV series- but it should be!
    Vince's quirky narrative makes the DVD very watchable and funny, challenging the viewer to get out there and do it for themselves. It's reality adventure biking for the wannabe Charlie and Ewans- but on a budget.
