HARLEY-DAVIDSON has selected a winner for its coveted ‘ultimate job’ prize.
Seasoned French biker Luis Castilla will now be tasked with planning and leading the American company’s ‘Discover More 2015’ campaign; a two-month journey of discovery around Europe.
His reward will be a €25,000 pay cheque and the gift of a Harley Street Glide Special touring motorbike – the very same one that Luis will use for the trip.
His application was selected as the best from more than 10,000 applications, which in turn came from 27 different countries. Harley cites the quality of his written and video applications as “inspirational”, but says that his all-round talent and passion won him the role.
After his selection Luis said: “I am absolutely thrilled about this Harley-Davidson opportunity, which will, without a doubt, be the most amazing experience of my life.
“As a biker and a passionate traveller, Discover More 2015 is everything I’ve been looking for. Sharing the experience of riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle through Europe, listening to other people’s adventures and riding with them through their local towns will make this an extraordinary event and one that will become larger than the sum of its individual parts.
“I want to share my experience with others so they can feel just how incredible this journey will be.”
Luis will now plan his adventure of a lifetime, embarking in May 2015 to spend the summer cruising through some of the greatest landscapes Europe has to offer. He will be accompanied every step of the way by a professional film crew to document and share his experience on social media and via a blog on the ‘Greatest Rides’ website – www.greatestrides.eu.
