The historic feat is Malaysia’s first ever international bike expedition to Russia and it's going to be two Indian bikers; Uthayakumar and Murugan from the Gandiva Motorcycle Club based in Malaysia.

These bikers are determined to break a record for the “Longest Distance Motorcycle Ride by Duo” in the Malaysia Book of Records. Equipped only with their backpacks and Harley Davidsons, Uthayakumar and Murugan will travel across 8 countries, beyond 16,000km for more than 60 days.

Starting off this challenging journey at Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC) in Kuala Lumpur on 19 April, the biker duo will ride through Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, China and Mongolia to finally reach Moscow, Russia just in time to watch the first game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Despite riding through the dangerous mountain roads of Kathmandu together a year before, Uthayakumar feels that this ‘Ride to Russia’ expedition is going to be FIVE times tougher. Of course, riding a bike with minimal supplies and travelling across the borders is not something everyone is up for.

Show your support for the Malaysian bikers by tagging your wishes with #RideToRussia2018. Stay tuned for more updates on their journey to Moscow, Russia.
