Henry Crew becomes a world record breaker after a global adventure onboard a Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled

Henry Crew is set to become a Guinness World Record holder after becoming the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe by riding unsupported on a motorcycle. 

The 23-year-old collected a Desert Sled up from Ducati UK's Silverstone base in March 2018, before officially setting off London's Bike Shed in his bid to enter the record books, whilst raising funds for men's health charity Movember. 

Originally planning to ride 35,000 miles, Henry actually covered closer to 55,000 on his global adventure, which saw him ride through 35 countries and six continents, including a stop at the Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale.

Henry completed the final leg of his round-the-world journey on Friday 19th April. He was joined at Ducati dealer Laguna Motorcycles for a group ride back to the Bike Shed, where he received a warm welcome from friends, family and supporters.

"It's been an amazing trip. Feels weird to be back but I'm excited about what comes next." Describing the Desert Sled Henry said, "It's a good balanced motorbike. It's a nice middle point between a road bike and an off-road bike as well. It's taken a whole lot of abuse and just started first time every time every day, but also it's great fun to bang it around the corners. It kind of ticks all the boxes for me." 

Henry's trip has now raised more than £9,500 for Movember. You can donate to this amazing cause here
