The first outing being a pilgrimage to the track as a biking enthusiast. Thus, suffice to say she has indeed created the Work-Life Balance. We met her soon after the flag off at Moto Day 2016 on occasion of the World International Motorcycle Day 2016. This event is an annual event organized by MotoDreamz. This year it was on 18th and 19th July 2016 in Lavasa.
Neharika Yadav – Bedazzled Symphony
While she already knew how to ride a bike, she started riding extensively from 2013. This is after her first visit to the Buddh International Circuit, Greater Noida. The symphony of the 1000cc machines that blazed past while she sat at the stands bedazzled Neharika. This is the inspiration that got her on the saddle.
Interestingly, it was an accident that took away 50% of her hand movement in a fatal car accident. This incident convinced her to live her life to the fullest. For a set of training wheels she had a motocross bike. In 2013, she went on track with a KTM 390. In 2015 she was the only woman amongst 33 other men on her Ducati 899 at JK Tyres Championship.
Today, her best time stands at 2 minutes 19 seconds being her fastest on the Buddh International Circuit.
