Lieutenant General Anil Puri has become the first serving Lieutenant General-rank officer of the Indian Army to complete France's oldest cycling event, 1,200-km Paris-Brest-Paris circuit.

The 56-year-old officer completed the circuit on August 23 by cycling non-stop for 90 hours.

Over 31,125 riders have managed to complete Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur ever since the event started in 1931.

This year, the picturesque town of Rambouillet hosted the departure and arrival for the event.
