Excelsior Sports Correspondent
JAMMU, Dec 10: J&K’s two ace bikers will be riding from Leh to Kanyakumari with a mission to break the record timing of 87 hours and 3 minutes set by two Haryana youth in covering a huge distance.
The duo of Agman Bali and Arman Jain is confident of covering the distance in around 70 hours to set a new record.
“We will be flagged off from Leh and will have to ride across 11 States/UTs before reaching the final destination. It is a big challenge for us but we have accepted it and will get it done. We have approached Limca Book, India Book and Asia Book,” the duo claimed.
Replying to a question as to what will be your average speed, Agman and Arman said that it will be around 80 to 100 kilometers, because in cities it will not be easy to maintain a very high speed.
“Our journey got hampered by the early snowfall, blocking the highway from Zojila Pass (Ladakh UT) and Manali Rohtang road in Himachal Pradesh. However, we are keeping track of the highway situation and if the situation is not conducive, then we will go for the mission in April-May next year,” said Arman.
Both bikers will travel in two separate motorcycles in a race against time scenario to make their mark in history and will be first persons in Jammu and Kshmir Union Territory to achieve the feat if they are able to complete their jouirney.
The duo has the experience of riding different bikes, but this time they will be using Domina 400 bikes for this uphill task.
In a message to young riders, the duo advocated for safe and slow driving and usage of helmet.
