As part of the 47thUAE National Day celebrations, record breaking rider Lotfi Hamrouni broke his own world record for “The Greatest Distance on Motorcycle in 24 hours” as an individual on public roads. He also set a new world record for “The Greatest Distance in 47 Hours” as an individual in a single country.
Lotfi had embarked on his epic ride on Thursday 6thDecember at 5pm. He then rode a KTM 1290 Super Adventure S right through, first breaking his own 24 hours record by 375 kms. He then pressed on to set his second World Record for “The Greatest Distance in 47 Hours” in a single country, covering a total distance of 5,325 kms.
On finally returning to the Festival, Lotfi was welcomed by officials from the Emirates Touring Club (ETC), Emirates Motor Sports Federation (EMSF), and KTM UAE.
“My advice to everyone is to dream big, believe in yourself and have the Yes I can attitude,” said Lotfi. “The weather conditions were good, very cold between 1am-5am, the bike was awesome, my mind and body were ready to achieve what I set out to.”
“It was windy, but I’ve been riding for a few years now and I managed to keep my balance and keep safe on the road,” he added. “Sleep deprivation was challenging after the first 24 hours but I am gifted to perform well without sleep and was well prepared for this challenge. With my motorcycle achievements, I hope to inspire to get out of the comfort zone, discover their gifts in life and challenge themselves. Riding is my passion and I can the impossible happen.”
