CLAYTON CO (KWWL) - Two motorcycle riders seeking a thrill on highways in Clayton County will pay a hefty speeding ticket.

23-year-old Anton Zavalko of Arlington Heights, Illinois and 22-year old Yevgeniy (Eugene) Yakubov of Vernon Hills, Illinois will both pay $1,415 after authorities say they reached speeds of more than 140 miles per hour when trying to outrun the law.

The Clayton County Sheriffs Office received a 911 call reporting the pair June 29th that two motorcycles that where going through Guttenberg at an extremely high rate of speed.

A Clayton County Deputy and State Patrol Officer tried to stop the bikes, but say the bikers took off.

24 miles later, the pursuit came to an end just east of Monona on US Hwy 18.

Both bikers are charged with Eluding, which is an aggravated Misdemeanor,  and speeding 145mph in a 55mph construction zone... adding up to a fine of $1415.
