There, they will be seen trying out some of the country’s oldest sports, including canal jumping.

2021 is already off to a great start and it hasn’t even started yet.

ITV added: “The action continues when the pair don Lycra for a spot of velodrome track cycling, alongside a world champion.”

Before they leave the country, the famous father and son take on the world’s tallest freestanding climbing wall.

Why did they decide to road trip across Europe?

It’s most certainly a far cry from Bradley’s usual sun-soaked golf-filled holiday to Portugal.

Keen to show his dad what Europe has to offer, the series will see Barney take him on a tour of the continent.

After The Netherlands they will visit Germany, Switzerland and Slovenia before stopping off in Italy on their way back to Blighty.

ITV said in a statement: “As always, Barney will be pushing his dad to the limits with more thrill-seeking activities like ski-jumping, paragliding and even a bungee jump.

“They’ll also immerse themselves in the local culture, enjoying everything from Swiss yodeling to Bavarian finger wrestling.”
