Uthayakumaru and Murugan decided to combine several goals - to watch World Cup matches, to see Russia and to break the national record for the duration of a motorcycle trip.


Two Malaysians - Utaya Kumar and Murugan Vellu - left their home country for the World Cup, which will be held in Russia from mid-June to mid-July 2018. The peculiarity of their trip is that men move on motorcycles. Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Malaysia Valery Yermolov gave a symbolic go-ahead to their motocross.

The path runs through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, China and Mongolia, which borders with Russia, and will take 60 days. This is the first such trip for Malaysia, the Russian embassy in Kuala Lumpur specified.

Young people are members of the local Gandiva Motorcycle Club Malaysia (Utaya Kumar is the head of the organization, and Murugan Vellu is his deputy) and ride Harley Davidson bikes. It is not the first time for them to make long trips: in 2017 they safely got on motorcycles to the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu.

The distance that motorcyclists have to overcome exceeds 16 thousand kilometers. Thus, they expect to set a new national record for the duration of the trip made on a motorcycle. At the same time, Kumar and Vellu recognize that the trip to Moscow will be the most difficult test in their practice of riding a motorcycle.

At the Russian-Mongolian border, Malaysian motorcyclists will be met and escorted to the capital of the Russian Federation by club "Night Wolves".

He has been fond of cross-country for six years and during this time he traveled by car in more than fifty countries, visiting about 200 cities. It is not yet clear whether Bhatti's trip will be tied in time to the World Cup.
