WorldRiderz Foundation Official Departure


WorldRiderz KTM 900's showing Rigid LED Light bars as they depart Sydney Children's Hospital

Snake Racing attended the WorldRiderz official Sydney to Paris departure to share in the excitement, passion and commitment to raising awareness and research funding for the Chronic Kidney Disease Global Renal Network. The icy breeze of a Sydney winter morning failed to dampen the spirits of the many sponsors, media teams and well wishers of the WorldRiderz as they arrived to show their support.

The riders, Stephane Etienne and Paul Torriero were kept busy giving interviews and posing for photographs during the lead up to their 9am departure. John Hanson performed a beautiful acoustic version of the foundation’s theme song “Destiny’s Road” in the hospital foyer. After an emotional thank-you to the WorldRiderz sponsors, familyies and supporters Stephane and Paul fired up the KTM’s and hit the bitumen.

Followed by a film crew to capture the journey as the WorldRiderz connect hospitals from across the world into the Global Renal Network. You will be able to follow this journey and watch all the highs and lows on the Discovery Channel in 2011.

Snake Racing is a proud sponsor of the WorldRiderz Foundation and has donated 2 Rigid Industries LED Duallys and Amber 6″ LED light bars for both KTM Adventure 900 motorcycles. These will prove to be a crucial piece of equipment when they get out on the road!

Here are some of the photos the Snake Racing Team snapped during the morning. Safe travelling Stephane and Paul!
