Drake wraps up his trip to Sao Paulo by sampling the diverse food fare at the Mercado Municipal marketplace. He almost loses his lunch when he rides on the back of a motoboy’s rickety bike through the hectic streets of the metropolis, dodging people and cars along the way in the scariest thing Drake has done all series! Once safely off the bike, he stops by an urban art gallery and meets Baixo, the owner/curator, followed by a visit to a favela where the residents create art to beautify the dreary Sao Paulo slums. Drake ends his trip with a late night at a club where he meets Igor Cavalera, a founding member of the legendary metal band Sepultura and currently with his wife, the DJ duo Mixhell.

Watch it here:

Drake’s Passage takes viewers to iconic cities around the world and showcases them through the eyes of Drake McElroy, one of the most stylish, cultured and respected riders in the freestyle motocross world.

As a judge for the Red Bull X-Fighters freestyle motocross world tour, McElroy visits several amazing locations, including Mexico City, Cairo, Madrid, Moscow, London, Rome, Dubai, Sao Paulo and Barcelona.

While on the road, there is no such thing as downtime. When he’s not in the judging booth, Drake hits the streets to see what some of the world’s largest and most dynamic cities have to offer. He explores what makes each location unique, including art, music, food and sports, as well as venturing off the beaten path.

In addition to soaking in the local flavor, McElroy immerses himself in the culture of motorcycles in each country, where despite their cultural differences, riders share one common bond – the love of the motorcycle.
