"When I was 5 years my father bought a motocross bike to test and it was an incredible feeling."

"My father, my mother helped me when I first started riding a bike. They help me a lot at the races, with their help I am more relaxed and faster."

"At school my favourite subject is physical education. In my free time I like snowboarding and I listen to a lot of music."

"I want to take some great experiences from racing and give it my best. My racing heroes are Kevin Schwantz and Casey Stoner."

"In 2019 I hope to fight and learn."

"My best ever race was Aragon in 2017, Race 1. I think it was my best race because I had to set a very high pace to win the race."

"Also my best race of 2018 was in Aragon because I had to fight in a group of many riders, wheel to wheel, body to body."

"I like tracks with heavy braking and slow corners."

Pushing hard right to the end of the season, Aragón 2019

"In 2019 I learnt that if you dont give 100% of yourself in all situations and you dont know how to think on the bike you will not achieve anything. I have also improved many aspects of my riding from the Jerez test to the last race in Aragon."

In the middle of it all, Misano 2019

"My favourite race of 2019 was Misano because it was the most fought race of the year and after the race I considered that the work of the whole weekend had been very good both the setting of the bike, the relationship with the media, etc."

Career Highlights

2019

• 2nd Red Bull Rookies Cup, best results 1st 3 times, Sachsenring 1, Red Bull Ring 1 and Misano. He was also 2nd in Mugello and Assen. If he had not had zero points from the first weekend in Jerez following a practice crash, he would have been a strong contender for the Cup. A great talent, plenty of speed, if he keeps it all focused for 2020 he will be tough to beat.
