Motorcyclist Sarah Kashyap is the only Indian woman to have completed the Raid de Himalaya

They say dynamites come in small packages. Sarah Kashyap, all of five-foot nothing, is an MBA graduate from England, a national-level judoka, an amateur boxer and the only Indian woman to complete all major motorsport rallies in India. She was only 16 when her journey with motorcycles began. It was her brother who introduced her to bikes and rallies and she loves the thump of an engine. Sarah holds the distinction of being the first-ever woman to complete one of the toughest endurance races in the country, the Raid de Himalaya, in the 17 years since its inception.

With no back-up vehicle and a broken collar bone resulting from a crash, Sarah completed the Raid. She rode solo to create awareness that women can safely travel alone across the country without fear if they are self-determined.
