Rider bio

Raul has not been on two wheels that long. "It all started in November 2011. I had long been watching motorcycle racing since my father has always been an enthusiast. I climbed on a motorcycle with my father again and since then I could not get off. My father was my mentor, now my parents and my brother help and support me to fulfill my dream."

2012
2013

"In 2014 I started to race of full size circuits, previously I had only raced on kart tracks. In Estoril I had my best race. I started a seventeenth and on worked my way through to win."

"I enjoy my racing, I especially love being with my teammates and see who wins the race in the most sportsmanlike manner. Studying with my team the circuit and getting the best performance out of me and the bike."

2014

2014 - Valencia

"2015 was my first year of Rookies Cup. I learnt so much that I can not explain it all, but above all I learnt confidence in myself and how to accept good advice."

My best race was in In November at Valencia in teh Spanish championship. I fell but in teh last nine laps raced through to sixth."

2015 - Second in Aragon 1

At school Raul's favourite subject is mathematics, he loves playing with his brother and training on motorcycles with other kids. His racing hero is Valentino Rossi and he knows that without the support of his family he would not be racing so he is determined to make the best of the opportunity.

He knows what he loves about racing, "The feeling of flying", and for 2016 the plan is simple. "I want to win the Rookies Cup and keep improve my riding."
