``I started riding bikes here in Spain when I was 9 yo``
I was born in Falticeni (Rumania) on 17 December 1997. When I was 9 years old I moved with my parents and my sister to La Rioja (Spain). I started riding bikes here in Spain with my friends around our small town.
``I did downhill races almost two years... ``
But the first time I tried a downhill bike was 7 years ago and since then my passion for this sport started. I did downhill races almost two years and in this time I did some cross country races, actually in my first race I finished second with a friend’s bike.
After some injuries doing downhill I decided to train only for cross country races. Since then I’m doing my best to become one of the best riders in this sport.
``In 2020 I will move to Elite category``
In 2020 will be some changes for me, I will move to Elite category and also it will be my first season with Trek-Pirelli. I’m really looking forward to start the 2020 season and do my first races with the team.
