Pol Tarrés achieves a double world record, in Los Ojos del Salado (Chile), with a Yamaha Ténéré 700 and YZ450FX

Pol Tarrés continues to surprise us with feats such as the one he recently carried out on the highest volcano in the world, The Eyes of Salado (Chile)beating a new world record on the backs of two Yamaha saddles.

It is not the first time that the Barcelona driver offers us a milestone of this type, since last 2022 he did the same on Cerro Mercedario, in Argentina. In that month of March, Tarres and his team rose to the 6,157.5 meters at the controls of a Yamaha Ténéré 700.

Then the Spanish pilot argued after his world record: “The main objective of our expedition was to test the bike and the rider in the harshest conditions possible, following alpine style at all times.”

He concluded: “On March 12, I took off from the base camp at 3,000 m above sea level, did 10 km and slept in the intermediate camp at 4,500 m. On the 14th I touched the highest point ever reached in a twin cylinder, 6,157.5 meters.”

New world record, this time double

Now the versatile rider has broken two world records, one for being the person who climbs the highest on a twin-cylinder motorcycle, 6,677 mand another to do it on a single cylinder, 6,756 m.

He has done it with his already famous Yamaha Teneré 700 and with a Yamaha YZ450FX in the unique setting of Los Ojos del Salado, the highest volcano in the world, located in the Andes Mountains in Chile.

Pol and his team Thirteen Racing Society They spent two weeks acclimatizing to the heights to achieve this feat. Tarres commented on his new double world record: “Above 6,000 meters everything seems to go super slow, the physical exhaustion is indescribable and there is no room for errors. Even walking is a challenge, much less piloting a Teneré at this altitude.”.

However, the former trial rider brought his talent to light and marked a new milestone in the history of motorcycling. The most sincere congratulations to everyone who has made this adventure possible:
