World's Biggest Motorcycle Riding Human Pyramid
On June 11, 2008, the Indian Army’s "Dare Devil" motorcycle display team broke its own record to form the world’s biggest motorcycle riding pyramid of people. Team has found a place in the prestigious Guinness Book of World Records when it successfully carried 251 men on 11 motorcycles for a record-breaking distance of 240 metres. Several army jawans, officers and common people gathered at the ground to witness the event.
The 'Dare Devils' already have four world records to their credit since 1991 and all have been endorsed by the Guinness Book of World Records authorities.
The first World Record was made at Gwalior in 1991 when 40 team members rode seven motorcycles to cover a distance of 400 metres.
Next came its world record in Pune in 1993, when the 81 team members on nine motorcycles rode for 200 metres.
On the third occasion, again at Pune in 1996, the team's 140 men were on 11 motorcycles and they covered 100 metres.
Their fourth world record was made at Jabalpur in 2001 with 201 men on 10 motorcycles covering a distance of 100 metres.
