The airline adds that over 50 international participants attended the race, conquering 200 km each day over a span of five days, all while being completely self-reliant in the Sri Lankan countryside.

“It has been an incredible life lesson: the hospitality of the Sri Lankans, the lush landscapes, the immersion experience, I am not ready to forget this exploration,” says Alain Broglia, a participant from France.

“For me, it is the hardest BikingMan I have done. A lot of unknown elements (the food, the heat, the route), which made it difficult as well as an unforgettable gravel experience,” says Franck Vergely from France.

“It was amazing! And the sunrises and sunsets were absolutely magnificent,” says Ceri and James Bickenel from the United Kingdom.

SriLankan Airlines adds that it remains committed to partnering with global events and through various initiatives has showcased Sri Lanka’s vibrant blend of culture, heritage, history and natural beauty, establishing it as the quintessential destination for travellers of all kinds.
