At only 24 years old, the then Geography teacher Elisabete Jacinto started in off-road motorcycle competitions. She began to challenge a predominantly male industry and was the first Portuguese woman to face the mythical Paris-Dakar rally on a motorcycle.
Motorcycles were followed by cars and in 2003 she started driving trucks. Not only did she become one of the first women in the world to complete the Paris-Dakar rally driving a truck, she also became the first woman ever to win a special in this category in the Rallye Optic Tunisie 2000.
Her continued efforts and many successes on this job keep putting both Elisabete and Portugal’s name out there after many years.
