Rider bio

There is no doubt in Xavi's mind about his opportunity in his second Rookies Cup season. "I have a good chance to see if I am worth to this or not. I will put everything I can into this year from my side. I want to move on the the World Championship and this is my chance to follow my hero Dani Pedrosa." "I love riding and when I am not on the bike I like helping my father prepare the bikes or hang out with my friends. on my part. We are a motorcycle family, my elder brother was into motocross but that wasn't for me. Eventually after 3 years I managed to convince my father that I should be road racing."
