RACING EXPERIENCE

I’ve been racing for the last 13 years in the World Enduro Championship and 14 years in the Spanish Enduro Championship.

WHY MOTORSPORTS

My father bought me my first motorcycle when I was 3 years old and I have been at it ever since.

MOST MEMORABLE experience
during a rally

The most memorable experience would be in the 1st stage of the Merzouga Rally when I lost my way, giving me my first taste of the rally.

MOST CHALLENGING experience
during a rally

Fighting for the overall win in the Sardegna Rally or the stage 5 victory at the Merzouga Rally

Daily Schedule on race days
and leisure days

During racedays, I stay focused by mentally preparing for each stage. If not that, you will find me relaxing with my friends.

Pre race ritual

I look at myself in the mirror and listen to music that motivates me to perform at my best.

FAVOURITE PART
OF THE JOB

Just being able to ride with a good flow and a confident head.

SIDE HUSTLE

I help my father around his workshop and enjoy every moment of the day.
