17-year-old Om Hitendra Mahajan recently rode into the record books, by completing Kashmir to Kanyakumari in just 8 days, 7 hours and 38 minutes.
An incredible achievement for any cyclist, made even more special by this Nashik lad’s age.
He broke the record set by Col. Bharat Pannu in October 2019.
The distance of 3650 km from Lal Chowk, Srinagar to Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu was done by riding 20 hours daily on an average. He was averaging 400 km a day.
Om was keeping the Mahajan flag flying high. Col. Bharat Pannu had last year broken the K2K record set by Mahendra Mahajan, Om’s uncle. So the record goes back into the family cabinet!
Om is following in the footsteps of his dad, Hitendra Mahajan and uncle Mahendra Mahajan. The both of whom are well-known names in the ultra-distance cycling community of the country.
Records like these are a team effort and Om wasn’t alone. He was the guy pedalling away on his bike. But he had experienced folks in his team, including his dad, uncle and fellow ultra-cyclist Kabir Rachure.
Hearty congratulations to Om for his grit and determination to take the record by 2 hours…
