Swiss endurance rider on his fourth of six continents in 100-day ride challenge

MINNEAPOLIS — May 2, 2016 — Swiss endurance rider Urs “Grizzly” Pedraita is 25 riding days and 16,932 miles into his quest to set a new world record by circumnavigating six continents in less than 100 riding days aboard his Victory Motorcycles® Cross Country Tour.

Grizzly rode away from Daytona International Speedway on March 11 flanked by hundreds of owners of Victory motorcycles who joined him to ride one lap of the Daytona 200 road course and escort him out of town for the first part of his journey.

From Daytona Beach, Fla., he traveled 3,971 miles in six days and 14 hours to complete the first leg of the ride in Panama City, Panama. He then continued traveling south 6,269 miles for nine days and 23 hours to reach Ushuaia, Argentina, at the tip of South America. From there, he returned 2,088 miles to Santiago, Chile, loaded his bike onto a plane and transferred to Australia, where he spent six days and five hours riding 4,604 miles west across the continent from Sydney to Perth.

From Perth, Grizzly and his Victory were flown to Cape Town, South Africa, on April 27, where they currently await clearance through customs. Thereafter is a 6,503-mile journey from Cape Town to Cairo, Egypt, where he’ll then point his front wheel toward Tunis, Tunisia, and a ferry to take him across the Mediterranean.

From Africa, Grizzly’s path will lead him north through Europe, then east through Asia. An eventual arrival in Singapore will have him load his bike onto a plane and travel to Anchorage, Alaska, before resuming his tour across North America to a planned finish in Daytona Beach.
