Rider bio

"My interest in motorcycles has been coming to me since I was little. My father and mother used to ride their motorcycle as amateurs and they used to ride with their friends on the circuits two or three times at year. We accompanied and spent the weekend in the circuits but it has always been just for fun."

Minimoto 2011

"For me my family is very important from the moment I started in the world of motorcycling they have always supported me, through both good and bad."

MiniGP 140 in 2013

"We are a team of five people that each has an equally important function each one the biggest critics are them and when I'm wrong they tell me and try to help to improve in the mistakes that I could have made and when everything goes well it is celebrated. We are a great family team!!"

MiniGP 140 IN 2013

"The satisfaction of the race is to make the best possible result and doing job and this working with confidence with the team and having a good set-up of the bike is very satisfactory because is everything works well in a team is an excellent job for me as pilots and for the team too."

Copa España IN 2014

"In 2016 I learned to manage the timed training practice to be able to good positions on the grid in the first rows, make good starts and try to make sure the top group does not leave me and manage the laps to cross the finish line in good positions or even win the race."

"For me all the races are very special because in each one you learn something but the best race was in 2016 in the circuit of Montmelo with the Honda CBR300. Coming from in the 5th position on the grid I fought through the whole race with a group of 12 riders for the first position. I managed for several laps to lower the lap time until I got in all sectors the fastest splits of the race and finished 4th. It was very exciting and I learnt a lot of things, it was a very special race for me."

Copa Honda CBR300 in 2016

"The race of Motorland in 2016 was another race that was difficult and still a lot of fun. I broke my clavicle 3 weeks before that race. After a recent operation I participated. In the first practice sessions I found a good pace matching the times of the fastrst. I started from 2nd on the grid and was fighting with 10 riders in a group and it was really tough all the way, I finish 6th. It was a great weekend."

"I like fast circuits and chicanes like Motorland and Montmelo although I like all circuits because they all have interesting sections."

"In the races what I intend to achieve is to learn a lot from all the riders, to know the bike and to learn all the circuits and for that I have to work very well and hard being very concentrated I hope to finish race to race as for forward as possible and try to fight for the lead positions."

"In 2017 I want to learn everything possible amongst the other riders, to race and to learn all about the equipment and especially the bike as it is my first year in the Moto3 categor,y to try to progres as much as possible."

Guadix Selection Event 2016

"The satisfaction of the race is to make the best possible result and doing a good job working with confidence with the team and having a good set-up of the bike. This is very satisfying because when everything works well in a team it is an excellent job for me as the rider and for the team too."

"Now that I am in the Rookies Cup I am going to give it 100% all the time, to make the most of the oportunity.

Of course life is not all racing and Beatriz knows that school is important as well. "In general all the subjects are interesting for me but I like more Mathematics and English. I like swimming to practice sport and go out to train with my family especially with my brother."

She has her eyes very much set on a racing future though and there are plenty of examples to look up to. "All the riders have great talent and for my are very interesting but I like most Marc Marquez because he is for me a big reference."
