Winner Takes AllEntering Deal or No Deal was Graham Field's brilliant idea to win the funding for his ambitious plan to ride to Mongolia on a Motorcycle
Graham, whose day job is working as a handyman fixing bathrooms and kitchens, has always loved motorcycles for as long as he can remember. He had already done some pretty interesting trips under his own steam before chancing his arm on Deal or No Deal so that he could do the big one to Mongolia! Previously he had ridden from Colorado to Alaska, partly on the famous Dalton Highway and to Croatia before that, which he considered to be 'easy' as it was on tarmac roads!
Beat The DealerWhen he applied to the show Graham told Noel Edmonds :
" I wanted to do a journey which pushed the limits and that would challenge myself "
“I thought it was important to do something significant"
After the usual nail-biting Deal Or No Deal programme, with all Graham's travel hopes resting on it, he won the £5,000 he needed and was good to go!
Essex Boy Hits the RoadHis first stop was ebay to pick up a Kawasaki KLR650, then he hit the road, setting off from his home in Essex to travel through Sweden, Poland, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, eventually reaching the wild plains of Mongolia.
When he got there he found that his wanderlust was not quelled and he didn't fancy retracing his steps so he just carried on to Vladivostok in Russia, and then South Korea, where he put his tired bike on a boat and headed back himself by plane.
