What made you want to learn how to ride a motorbike?

The first word I said as a newborn was “moto” (meaning motorcycle in Spanish). I inherited the passion from my father and grandfather. The love for motorbikes runs through my veins.

What will be your greatest challenge at the Int. GS Trophy 2020?

Having the mental toughness to stand strong eight days in a row, without sleeping comfortably, without eating as desired and being tired of riding so much time without a break.

Why will your team win the Int. GS Trophy 2020?

The qualifier was tough; really good people were left behind, so in the name of all those good riders, we must fight for the best result possible. We probably won’t be able to train together, but we will surely compensate it with passion, preparation and desire.
