British TV Presenter: ‘I Think I Could Become a Real Hajduk Split Fan’

ccaWell known British adventurer and TV presenter, Henry Cole, who is currently making his way around Croatia on a Steve McQueen Métisse Desert Racer for his TV show ‘World’s Greatest Motorcycle Rides’, has stopped off at Hajduk Split football club to film scenes for his show which will be broadcast in over 130 countries on the Travel Channel later this year…

“Soon as I arrived in Split I could immediately feel the emotion and passion that is connected to Hajduk. The stadium is spectacular. I can only imagine how it is when it is full. I really like it here, I think I could be become a real Hajduk supporter,” said Cole, before taking a penalty, and missing, at Poljud stadium.

As well as Split, Cole has also visited Pula, the islands of Cres, Krk, Rab, and Pag, and Zadar, and Skradin on his adventure. The show, which will present the best motorcycle routes in Croatia, whilst taking in local traditions and cuisine along the way, will air in November on the Travel Channel.
