Mark Philip Benosa, more popularly known as Makie to his friends and fellow riders was crowned Grand Winner of the first season of the first online motorcycle reality show in the country, Rouser Dare Venture Philippines during the live airing of its final episode last June 1, 2019 at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
A grand prize winner of Php 100,000 and a brand new Rouser NS160, Makie is a long-time Rouser rider from Taguig and is considered one of the more influential riders in the Rouser community.
Coming in second to Makie was Henry Malaton III, the youngest rider of the group; a 23-year old rider from Cagayan de Oro city.
The winner was announced by Rouser Dare Venture Philippines host, Zach Lucero as he explained the rigorous final challenge that our riders faced, which was a combination of motorcycle riding, and hiking to the mouth of the Mt. Pinatubo crater.
Along with them for the ride was the Rouser NS160, which was the same unit used by each of the participants since the first day of challenges. The Rouser NS160 units in question were kept in their stock condition, and no parts or modifications were changed or done along the way.
The grand awarding ceremony was also attended by representatives from the highly supportive Rouser clubs, motorcycle dealers, members of the motorcycle media, and executives from Kawasaki Motors Philippines Corporation, headed by its Vice President for Finance, Mr. Yasuhiro Yamada.
Also present during the awarding were the 8 other finalists who were eliminated over the course of the 9-episode journey.
