I am 41 years old with partner Lynne and have three children Jack 17, Blair 8 and Robbie 4. I am a director of several companies, Scotland’s biggest towbar fitting centre, a 4x4 hire company and a coachworks. I started riding motorcycles in 1982  competing in schoolboy motocross and like my brother finished up in the Scottish adult championship class. More recently I successfully turned my hand to road racing in the 600cc class, narrowly missing out on being the first rider to lap at 100mph on the Scottish East Fortune track, but my love of off-road racing has prevailed once again, and my ambition of using my riding skills on the “Dakar “ is going to happen.


Following Footsteps!

Ewan Buchan’s motorcycling pedigree could not be better. He is determined to follow in the wheel tracks of his great grandfather Jack Buchan who won top awards in the Manx Grand prix, Scottish six days trial and the international six days trial.


In January 1972 when he was 62 he set off from Cape Horn planning to ride all the way to Alaska. Unfortunately with the worst of the trip behind him he took ill in Mexico and had to be flown home.


Ewan says “the thought that I would be riding over the same terrain inspired me to tackle the Dakar. Infact with the 2008 rally being switched from Africa to South America was a perfect reason to have a go myself”.
