G Subhash Chandra Bose
350 race wins, a racing career spread across almost 4 decades, the race machines spanning the spectrum - right from 49cc mopeds through to full-blown 100bhp 350cc Yamaha TZ's in motorcycles and Formula Maruti to fully prepped up Maruti Esteems amd Standar Rovers in cars. And an exceedingly impressive name to boot. That's G Subhash Chandra Bose for you. Or 'Bullet Bose' as he was (and still is) fondly known in the heyday of motor racing in India from late 1960's to early 2000's.

Ashish Saurabh Moudghil
Ashish Saurabh Moudghil, 30 years old, belies his young age as a motorcycle rally rider and is a veteran of innumerable battles fought and won off the tarmac. Born in Kalka, Haryana, in the lap of the Himalayan foothills, anything on two wheels with or without a motor between them attracted him like iron to a magnet. He started racing in 2002 and stood 7th in the 2002 SJOBA Rally on a 150cc Hero CBZ. A seemingly modest beginning saw this young man rise and rush through future competitive events like a hurricane in a hurry. He won the SJOBA 2004 event despite falling in a river and drowning his bike! He bagged his first podium in the Raid de Himalaya 2004 with 3rd overall. And thereon came an endless string of firsts that would remain hard to beat for posterity. He was first in four subsequent SJOBA rallies, first again in the 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009 editions of the Raid de Himalaya. He has been competing in the Raid for his team, Red Rooster Racing, since 2009 and rides a Yamaha WR 450 now. A man with immense skills, a steely resolve and unerring focus on his goals, Ashish Maudghil is not just a winner but a role model worth emulating by any and every motorcycle rallyist in the country.

Known fondly as Kaleem Sir by bikers across country, he has been an endless source of inspiration and energy for 'younger' bikers even at the age of 65.

Graduated and joined army and served the country for ten years as a gunner from 1965 to 1975. Then he worked for an American firm, an authority in solid waste disposal, and started his own consultancy in 1980.
