Last year in June, two doctor-brothers, Hitendra Mahajan (45) and his younger brother Mahendra (40) have completed the 4,860km Race Across America (RAAM), considered as world’s toughest cycle race, in just eight days and 14 hours. Now they aim at completing 6000km long journey – covering Mumbai-Chennai-Kolkata-New Delhi ‘golden quadrilateral’ – from December 18 and aim to finish the race in just 12 days.
Mahajan Brothers have decided the theme as “follow the rules and India will rule” and “follow traffic rules and save lives”. They will also appeal to their friends to join the journey and spread message. During the journey, an average cycle will cover 500Km per day.
According to the cyclist-brothers, they will start their journey from Mumbai and go to Chennai, then to Kolkata, New Delhi and back to the financial capital. In the course of their race, they will pass through nearly a dozen cities.
