Default Planning Iron Butt Saddle Sore 1600

Hi everyone
We are planning to do the Saddle Sore 1600km in which we have to cover a distance of 1610 kms in 24 hours.
Need some info on the roads and if someone can tell us the alternate routes to do 1600km.
Plan to start from Chandigarh-Panipat-Bawal-Jaipur-Ajmer-Jodhpur-Jaisalmer-Udaipur which would be 1600 kms plus.

We did abut 1200 kms last year till Jaisalmer and the road from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer was really bad initially. Would like to know of the road conditions at present. Will be doing it in November.
Also what is the present state of the Delhi Jaipur Highway. Was a lot of construction last year. Is it any better?
How is the Jaisalmer to Udaipur road?

If its just the Iron BUtt 1600 that you are aiming at,then you could easily do Chandigarh-Panipat-Bawal-Jaipur-Kishangarh-NH79A-Bhilwara-Beawar-Ajmer-Sujangarh-Ratangarh-Sadarhshahr-Hanumangarh-Abohar-Moga-Ludhiana-Chandigarh.

Roads are all good.

You could do C'garh-Jaipur-Udaipur-Ahmedabad-Jaisalmer-Jodhpur-Ajmer-Sujangarh-Abohar-Chandigarh.

If you are not keen on Jaisalmer,you can do Udaipur-Abu-Jodhpur and back.Roads are all good.
