Rider bio

 "I became interested in racing just by myself, when I was a kid I liked the bike sound. No one in my family liked bikes or racing before I was born."

"My family haven't played a big part in my career, like being my manager, because they don't know much about it. My family help me in all they can and stay by my side in all the good and bad things."

"My father comes with me to all training and races and my mother comes to all the races and she organises all the traveling. I have a sister Rebeca and she is 18 years old."

"My best race ever was in 2017, when I won the Spanish championship in Motorland Aragón, I was missing a few points to become the champion after missing 2 races."

"My best race in 2018, was again in Motorland Aragón when I was fighting for the victory in a group of 4 riders, finally I finish 3rd."

"What I learnt in 2019 is that when you are in difficult situations you have to know how to face it and move on."

"The tracks and corners that give me more satisfaction are the 'Stop and Go' corners that you have to stop the bike quickly and then open the throttle hard."

"What gives me more satisfaction in a race weekend is when you have planed an objective and you achieve it."

"At school my favourite subject is Geography and when I am not riding I like to be with friends and family. I want to become World Champion. And my hero is Valentino Rossi."

"My expectation for 2020 is to learn a lot of this experience and do it the best that I can."
