_Q&A

Your favourite race and climb?

Giro di Lombardia is my favourite race. And favourite climb is La Barrerilla here close to my home.

Your best or most memorable result in pro cycling?

Giro d’ Italia 2017. After a crash I lost my options on the GC so I had to fight every day to find a motivation. It was such a challenging mission.

What are your personal ambitions for the season?

I would like to be competitive. Be on the fight of the stages apart of the GCs.

What are the pros and cons of being a blockbuster name in cycling?

You have more responsibilities and pressure, but you are able to do it.

You’ve got a degree in Architecture. As a cyclist travelling the world, which country impresses you the most?

The best of travelling is that you see a lot of different places and finally you find your own house as the best. I really like Basque country structure.

How different is it being a GC rider from a super domestique? 

Definitely you have more pressure and responsibilities.

What are your thoughts on the Merida Reacto you will be racing this season?

I enjoy Merida Reacto a lot. With this bike, I feel great and it is really light bike to be a bike with disc brakes.
