Mumbai, June 28 (ANI): Braving the rain and treacherous terrain, enthusiastic riders participated in the Gulf Monsoon Scooter Rally-2009 in Mumbai on Sunday.

This year marks the twentieth edition of the rally.

Organised by Sportscraft and sponsored by Gulf Oil Corporation, the rally saw participants from Mumbai and other cities of Maharashtra like Pune, Nashik and Kolhapur.

Shrikant Karani, chief of Sportscraft, said that the rally is like any other adventurous sports held.

"Participants keep their scooters in good condition throughout the year just to participate in this rally. When they travel to areas like Belapur, they have to ride through water, mud, rough patches, etc, which becomes quite challenging for them. So this rally is like any other adventurous sports," said Shrikant Karani, chief of Sportscraft.

The rally was open to all Indian-made two stroke, four stroke and gearless scooters.

"The scooter has its own charm. That's why I have participated in the rally," said Harpreet Singh Janjuha, a participant.

The rally was flagged off from Our Lady's Home in Parel and it ended at K-Start Belapur, Navi Mumbai. (ANI)
