A young man from Udaipur, Rohitesh Upadhyay, bagged not one but two world records in the field of motorsports. Rohitesh, who hails from Udaipur, bagged the record of stagging the longest ever Sportbike Freestyle Riding done by anyone in India.
Rohitesh attempted this skilled act in the field of Sportbike Freestyle Riding on September 29 last year. The act named as ‘No Hands Motorcycle Wheelie’ is one of the most difficult tricks performed in motorsports.
In this trick, the athlete is not allowed to touch the handlebar at any time after the starting line, while the front wheel remains in the air throughout. Rohitesh managed to balance this specific wheelie for a distance of 125.7 meters non-stop!
The trick was set as a record in the International Book of World Records. On 17th April this year, the Golden Book of World Records also honoured him for the same record.
The motorsports athlete, Rohitesh has been in the field for the past 10 years. He has attended more than 100 shows across India.
The ex-TVS Factory Rider also broke the India Book of Records in Chennai in 2017 at Express Avenue Mall. The 5-hour long show started at 12 noon and extended up till 5 pm in the evening.
Rohitesh is currently associated with an international OEM manufacturer brand where he tests concept electric motorcycles.
He will be felicitated in December 2020 in Delhi for making India proud by being the first Indian to bring this laurel home.
More power to him!
