Vijay Parmar of Himalayan Motorsport Association said, “Raid 2018 was very difficult. We kept facing bad weather at every turn. For the first time, we encountered temperatures as low as -16 degrees. Wind chill was well over -20 degrees, making the going really tough for the bikers.” Parmar added that shortening the Raid from six days to four days helped keep competition alive. “The Raid has usually been six days long. By Day 4, the likely winners usually emerge and it’s just a question of holding on to your lead after that,” he stated.
