Guess your record also deserves an improvement, "The slowest Vitim river bridge crossing, with a bike".
Regarding Iker's record, well, those daring to brake it and reminding the promoter of this precious events, someone will take a "COLDBATH".
I think you risk more than that. Your bike and luggage will be history, thats foe sure. If water levels are low you should be able to swim ashore - but when the water is high the volume of current has to be seen to be believed. If you managed to get ashore, in all your bike gear helmet and boots, in near freezing water, it could be miles downstream.
When the waters are high and fast I would give a biker less than an even chance.
