New Delhi, June 13 : Suresh Kalmadi, Chairman of Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, flagged off the motorcycle rally, called 'Delhi 2010 Riders-Delhi to Leh Rally', in New Delhi on Sunday to promote the Games.

The 34 enthusiastic riders will cover a total of 3,500 kilometres over 15 days, spreading the message and spirit of the Commonwealth Games 2010.

"Now, we are in the final lap, we need to popularise the games. So, we are having various events like the one today where the motorcyclists are going around to four-five states to bring about consciousness about the Commonwealth Games throughout the country," said Kalmadi.

The riders will pass through the four states of Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, where they will go up to the Leh district situated at the altitude of 3,500 meters.

The riders will promote the 2010 Games by distributing banners, posters and pamphlets to the locals throughout their journey.

With just 112 days left for the Games, Kalmadi said that all the preparations for hosting a successful event are in place.

"There are 112 days left for the Games, so most of the things, which are required for the Commonwealth Games, are in place. I have just come back from London where we had the last meeting of the Commonwealth Games Federation and all the members were very happy to note the progress of the games," said Kalmadi.

Kalmadi said the Commonwealth Games 2010, which are to be held from 03-14 October in New Delhi, would be the biggest games, as it will witness the participation of some of the best sportspersons from the Commonwealth nations.

"So, I think it is going to be great games and I am happy that all the foreign participation is also in a big way.

Australia, England and Canada are sending their biggest teams for the games. So, I am very happy that things are working out," said Kalmadi.

"The Queen's Baton Relay, which commenced from the Buckingham Palace in England, after its long journey around the globe will enter India on June 25 from Pakistan at the Wagah border," he added.
