'IRON BUTT' RECORD SMASHED USING AVON TYRES
October 14th 2004.

Cooper-Avon has reported that the American 'Iron Butt Association' long-distance riding record has been broken using Avon Azaro ST tyres.

Rider Gary Eagan covered 5,600 miles in just 101 hours, beating the existing record by 13 hours. He rode a Ducati Multistrada, shod with a set of Avon Azaro ST AV45/46 tyres. At the end of the ride, Gary estimated that there was approximately 500-miles worth of tread left on the tyres: "Avon's AV45/46 sport tourers are the best tyres I've ever used in my million or so miles riding motorcycles".
