Sponsor for LEL - 1400 Kms Cycling race - Yuvaraj P

This is about the request of sponsorship via crowd funding to participate in the cycling event ‘London Edinburg London – LEL 2017’.
About me:
I am Yuvaraj Palaniappan from Coimbatore, an ultra Distance Cyclist, a Triathlete and Double time Ironman finisher.
About the event:
London–Edinburgh–London (LEL) is a randonneur bicycle event of approximately 1,400 kilometres over an out-and-back course between the capital cities London (England) and Edinburgh (Scotland). It has been described as a hardest cycling event for a contender in the United Kingdom. The event is being held every four years since 1989. The 8th edition of LEL takes place from 30th July 2017 to 4th August 2017. The route begins from the flatter terrain in Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire to a hillier terrain further north in the Pennines and Scotland's Southern Uplands. The route is mostly on quieter roads and lanes. The participants must cover this distance self-supported under extreme weather conditions. Each rider will be given a cutoff time of 116 Hours which includes break for food, sleep and refreshments.
LEL 2013 witnessed the debut participation of Indians and only one managed to complete the event within the cutoff time. I will be one among few Indians who are planning to take part this time. With my current experience I am confident that I will complete the event before the given cutoff time.

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for donating for my dream Cycling Event "London Edinburgh London - 1400 Km". I couldn’t have done it without your support. I have successfully completed the event and got the LEL award.

Official distance: 1436 Kms
As per my Strava: 1465.5 Kms + 72 Kms = 1537.5 Kms (Rode 101.5 Kms extra).
Rode from friend home to starting point 19.5 Kms – Finally its 1557 Km.

Happy to get the title of “Fastest Indian finisher 0f 2017

First time experience of cycling between two countries in a single event.
Second time - Represented India in international Ultra distance cycling event.
Really proud of being an Indian and Decathlonion. 

Completed my ride in 110 Hrs 07 Min out of 116 Hrs 40 Min – with 6 Hrs 10 Min spare in hand,

Finished the race with the struggle of extremely cold weather (4°c), Tough rolling terrain with a mix of High elevation gain especially in Scotland, Balanced wasting time in control points, Extreme bad roads keep reducing the average speed, shout and cry in between, pain in body and knee joint from the beginning. Too much head and cross winds, loneliness, Few nights fear inside jungle, 3 Punctures, 1 Tyre burst, 3 times Mechanical failure, 1 Break failure, Sleepless nights, Nonstop rain, Fog, unconscious, Numbness in hands and legs.

This is second biggest award in long distance randonnering cycling category, next level challenge for the cyclist who finished Paris-Brest-Paris, as per me LEL is the toughest one for the above all reasons compared to PBP.
