On cloud nine after clean sweeping the Border Gavaskar Trophy with a 4-0 win over Australia, the Indian National Cricket Team Captain- Mahendra Singh Dhoni chose to relax by riding his Harley Davidson Hellcat cruiser through the Buddh International Circuit (BIC). An avid bike enthusiast, Dhoni was accompanied by his team mates, namely Sachin Tendulkar, Ishant Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Pragyan Ojha, amongst others.
Dhoni and his team mates enjoyed a light afternoon after winning the fourth and final test against Australia by six wickets at the Feroze Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi. Situated near the National Capital in Greater Noida, the BIC is India's only Formula 1 race track and spans 5.14 km in length.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni burned rubber at BIC track in his Harley Davidson X132 Hellcat cruiser motorcycle, which he bought in 2012. The self confessed sports and cruiser bike enthusiast has his own team in the FIM Super sport World Championship. Visibly awed by the BIC in his first ever visit, Dhoni was quoted as saying, “It was an amazing experience. I think I am a bit late to come here. But surely I will come during the Super Sports series races. Driving Hellcat was good but will bring a sports bike next time around.”
Sachin Tendulkar, the world renowned Indian cricket genius, enjoyed his taxi ride, when a BIC official drove him all around the circuit. Interestingly, Sachin had waved the chequered flag during first edition of the Indian Formula 1 Grand Prix held in 2011 Ishant Sharma put his racing gloves and drove his Audi RX5 sports car across the circuit. Sharma was also joined by fellow cricketers Pragyan Ojha, Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli.
