Lt General Anil Puri

Indian Army officer Lt Gen Anil Puri has become the first serving general to complete France’s oldest cycling event, the gruelling 1,200-km Paris-Brest-Paris circuit.

Lt Gen Puri, 56, completed the circuit on Thursday by cycling non-stop for around 90 hours from Rambouillet on the outskirts of Paris to the Brest military port on France’s western tip and back. Of the 367 participants from India, only around 80 could successfully complete the arduous trek while the rest dropped out midway.

There were a total of 6,500 participants at the event from as many as 60 countries.
