It starts here
Veer, a Go Karting champion in the cadet class, shifts to Supercross Racing – aged of 13
Eeshan, a top-level tennis player, switches to supercross racing to feel the adrenalin rush.
The bold choice
Eeshan starts racing on a borrowed bike, an RX 100 from Rahul Karle, who is part of the core team today. Veer, around the same time, jumps on an RX 100 to explore the thrill himself.
Eeshan’s brother and a passionate sportsman, Aashwin uses all his experience from coaching and management to shape Eeshan as a top-level supercross athlete.
Veer comes to Pune to hone his skills at motocross and supercross. Eeshan, having trained under Paul Bloomfield in Australia, was already racing and the duo meet for the first time.
This begins training, practice and racing sessions together, kickstarting a lifelong friendship.
Off the blocks
It’s the first year of racing together as Rahul Karle joins the duo as their Chief Mechanic and Aashwin continues with his unprecedented support to Eeshan and Veer. Veer decides to continue to race with Eeshan as part of Team Privateer, instead of joining a factory team.
They go on to become the Winners of the Gulf National Dirt Track Championships. Eeshan goes on to race the Asian Nations of Motocross for Team India in this year.
