Rider bio

"In fact, since I was born, It would have been impossible not to try riding motorbikes, Why? The answer is simple: in my father's house I was surrounded by motorbikes. When I was three my father gave me a motorbike (Yamaha TTR 50)."

"At 5, I drove a motocross bike (KTM 65) and I started competing. I still remember how it feels to ride bikes like this. After, I started to compete in speed tracks: minibikes, MiniGP 110, MiniGP 140 in "Cuna de Campeones" with Julián Miralles. In those days, I learned a lot and I managed to win several national championships. Now, I take part in European Talent Cup with MRE Talent Team with Javier Cobos."

"My father liked to show me the bikes or taking me riding. I really enjoyed it. He, Roberto, has played a big part in my career. He taught me to ride motorcycle when I was a child."

"I have shared many hours on the highway with my dad, he has played a big part in my career. Now, he takes me to train motorbike and to the races. The rest of my family help me to other things: they take me to the gym, to go to my English classes... They help me with whatever I need. I have a sister. Her name is Iris and she is 9 years old. My Father is self-employed and my mother works in a supermarket"

"In 2015, during my last year in MiniGP140, I had the chance to participate in the Spanish Motorcycling Speed Championship (CEV), at the Ricardo Tormo Speedway Circuit (Valencia). I managed the 5th place in 80cc 2T."

"In the same year, I was selected to participate in Allianz Junior Motor Camp, a campus organised by Marc Marquez in Rufea (Lleida, Spain). I spent some days with 20 children of several countries: Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Brazil. It was very important to me and very exciting because Marc is my favourite rider."

"This year I am studying the third course of Secondary school. I have little time, but I bear it well. My favourite subject is Maths, but I don't know what I am going to study when I grow up. Now, my dream is to be a professional rider in MotoGP."

"My favourite subject at school is maths, When I have free time I like riding a bicycle with friends. My hero is Marc Marquez."
