On the bike, I’d call myself an all-rounder: who can roll a bit and who is focussed on strategy too.

In 2009 I started my own business and have been running it since then. In 2013 we bought out the factory we’d been using in Italy and in 2014 we launched Le Col into the USA. This year, we launched in Korea and Australia. We now operate in these countries and continue to grow across all territories.

My favourite ride is heading out of Porto Pollenca, up and over Lluc, down Sa Calobra, over the Puig Major and Soller climbs before rolling back to Porto Pollenca. Away from the bike it’s all about friends, family and personal development for me. I hate to stand still. There’s always more to do, things to improve.
