NEW DELHI: Two Border Security Force (BSF) jawans belonging to the motorcycle trick riding team 'Janbaz' on Tuesday set a new world record by riding for 10 hours 34 minutes 27 seconds at a stretch, on top of a pole fitted to their steed.
Inspector Awdhesh Kumar Singh and Head Constable Durvesh Kumar of BSF rode on 16.5 feet tall ladder/pole fitted to their steed on the 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle and entered the Limca book of world record.
They set their record at Chawla BSF Camp in Delhi. The team broke Indian Army's previous record of 09 hr 04 min 05 sec.
