One year ago I got an email that changed my 2016. The email read congratulations Vir you are in the running for the top 14 @ducatimotor Globetrotter programme. If you are chosen you need to come for the bootcamp in Tuscany. Please reply by a certain date.
Because Harsh and I were riding the tigers through Ladakh I only read my email after the due date. Sitting in Manali drinking a beer at @rideinn to celebrate a super trip I replied to the mail and said "sadly I was riding in Ladakh and never got to see the email till today but thanks for considering me." To which an answer came "we know you are still in the running we will be in touch". Eventually I made the cut(that story later) and became one of 14 of some of the most amazing people and motorcyclists.
