In 2019, after completing PBP me and Prasad were travelling in a bullet train from Paris to Zurich, we got to know that we could apply for LEL 2021 and if we were lucky we could get a chance to ride in LEL since it was based on lottery. Thats how the journey to LEL started. We had heard that LEL was much tougher than PBP in distance, elevation and weather. We thought it's a good idea to train hard and to try LEL in 2yrs. Covid caused an year's delay and the event was moved to 2022.
