The fitness freak John Abraham is now gearing up for a bicycle with the champion para-cyclist Stefan Voormans. For the extra gyaan, para-cycling is cycling done by physically challenged sports-persons. Stefan Voormans is a professional para-cyclist who holds a record of covering a standard marathon, 42 Kilometers, in 1 hour and 24 minutes.
The race, which is a part of Tour De India, the largest cycling event in the country, will be a 2 kilometre race, starting from Asian Heart Institute in BKC.
“John is being coaxed for a longer race which will go over the Sea Link and end in Worli. But right now, he has agreed for a 2 km race,” said a source.
“John is one of the fittest guys in Bollywood and people love to see him take part in sports. We are very happy that he has agreed to be a part of this special race,” said Dr Akil Khan, the organiser of the event.
“I think Stefan should beat John, but knowing John, it could be anybody’s race,” replied Dr Khan, on being asked who might win according to him.
