From Birmingham to Marrakesh in TCX…

This weekend, hardcore punk band Cancer Bats frontman, Liam Cormier, set off for an adventure of a lifetime which will see him cover over 2000 miles as he rides from Birmingham to Marrakesh, Morrocco, for Scram Africa 2019 – wearing TCX Drifter boots.

He will then take part in the 930 mile on-road and off-road route of the Scram Africa event. Starting and finishing in Marrakesh, the route includes sections of the Paris-Dakar tracks and full sand dunes as well as crossing the Atlas mountains and the famous Dades Valley.

The day after finishing the seven-day ride on his custom-made Mutt Motorcycle, Canadian Cormier will then meet with his bandmates and start his tour through Europe, ending at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival in the UK on 25-26 May.

Excited about his adventure, Liam said: “I can’t wait to get started and it seems like everyone I’ve spoken to about the trip is into it. I love the idea of riding a bike that’s not known as a ‘typical’ adventure bike and I’ve also picked the riding kit I’m wearing carefully so that I’m protected but also don’t look like I’m about to ride thousands of miles. I hope that my trip encourages people to ride what they have for whatever they want to do on it.

“The Drifters are the perfect boots to tackle a huge adventure like this. They offer versatility for both on and off road adventure and not to mention they’re waterproof. For me, when leaving on a trip where I don’t know what I’ll be coming across its great to know that one boot will have me covered for the whole thing. More hardcore than the average boot, but still comfortable. I can’t wait to rip some desert!”

The Drifter WP boots features a soft brown leather upper with added gear change protection,double stitching and intermediate footbed to make it robust, plus microfibre front and rear folds. It has a waterproof lining and internal protection against heat in chamois leather. The boot fastens using three wear-resistant, interchangeable aluminum buckles with an ergonomic design. The soles have a deep tread and there are inserts in the ankle area and polyurethane shinbone protection. The Drifter WP is available in sizes 36-48 and has an RRP of £259.99.
