Two BSF soldiers recently created history by riding for 10 hours 34 minutes and 27 seconds on a 16 ft 5 in tall ladder fitted to their motorcycles. BSF Inspector Avdhash Kumar Singh and Head Constable Dhruvesh Kumar were the two daredevils.
Those of you who have watched the Republic Day parades would be aware of the spectacular bike stunts done by our soldiers. Regulars here would remember our recent report on ‘Ravi Patiala‘, a Punjab-based motorcycle stuntman who is known for some really physics-defying stunts on his Royal Enfield motorcycle. Well, it looks like these two BSF soldiers are one step ahead of everyone else as not only have they managed to ride on a tall ladder fitted to their motorcycles, but have also created a world record.
Also, this is not the first time that our soldiers have set a world record. Earlier this month, on April 14, a team of BSF soldiers created a new world record in stunt riding by travelling a distance of a kilometre with 36 men on just three motorcycles in less than a minute. The three motorcycles used here were Royal Enfield 350cc models, which helped the ‘Janbaaz’ team of bikers of the Border Security Force (BSF) to shatter a similar record made by a team of motorcycle stuntmen of the Indian Army. The earlier record was posted in 2011. In fact, earlier this year, a team of Army Service Corps (ASC) entered the highly coveted Guinness Book of World Records with 58 Indian army stuntmen riding on a 500cc Royal Enfield motorbike for 1,200 m. This world record was created at the Yelahanka Air Force Station in Karnataka.
We salute the bravery and the skills of all the stuntmen from our Armed Forces. We are sure that these motorcycle stunt riders can easily put to shame some of the most skilled stunt professionals out there.
