It was on Samaya 24x7 Kannada Channel.

I was able to catch the last few minutes of the telecast at my in-laws place, they have cable. Looks like all the coverage was at the front. All the Team-BHPians were at the back, so we were not covered I think.

That's the usual story cameraman somehow manages to stay away from us. But one Mr Red_Liner mentioned some coverage on us, when he watched TV at his gym in the morning. Dont know if its the same channel or not.

I don't see the channel on Tatasky.

It may be this too: Suvarna News 24X7 Kannada News Channel Live Online With High Quality (Internet TV)

Not very sure whether it is Suvarna or Samaya.
My friend told it was telecasted on TV9 last night

Last year it was the best OTR but this year it took to a new level of thrill enjoyment, hats off to Naveen and marshalls for conducting wonderful event. For the first time I did not click photos but have few videos will upload later.
I guess everybody need to thanks to a Spotter named Vinay who guided us in one tricky section without him I would not have done that section.

I guess blue and leeches have drained out your brain, I spoke to him after the event and have his number also.

I too spoke to him, asked his name, took his photograph, applauded his skill, etc. He is indeed Vinay.

Why didn't they use the winch instead of pulling by hand?

Looks like you all had a rocking time! Nice slushy track with the rain to help keep it that way!

@Sunil: Thanks for sharing the photos.
