Rider bio

"My sister had a minibike and I saw her ride and I wanted to do it too. One day my parents decided sign me up at a motorbike school called KSB. I started in 2010, training to make my dream possible," explains Adrián who likes running, mountain biking and swimming so his favourite subject at school is Physical Education.

"My father helps me in the races a lot. With the help of my father, every day I am faster. He is a car mechanic in his own business and my mum looks after my sister and I and the home."

"My best ever race so far was in Albacete in 2017 because was one race in a large group and I won the race."

"Another great race of 2017 was in Barcelona because was one group of 5 with very hard rivals and in the last lap I overtook two in the corner called "La Caixa" and I won the race."

"In 2017 I learnt to talk with my mechanics, I learnt to overtake better, to think more in the race and not to be so nervous during a race."

"Winning is always satisfactory but you can't win without one good teamwork."

When I was 3rd in the last corner another rider touched me and we crash. But I toke my bike and I finished 9th.

In 2018 I learnt to not be nervous in the races and I learnt to fight in big groups. For 2019 I expect to learn much more than this year and be in the top positions.
