This guy loves breaking records: in 2017, between January and October, he was the only professional rider to have scored at least one road racing win for every stage race in which he participated.
Furthermore, in the 2017 Giro d’Italia, he was the first South American rider to win the points’ classification in a Major Tour.
Like many cyclists, his father inspired him to start riding. He was 15 years old and up until then he had been an avid roller-skater.
He loves speed and when he can’t get enough of it on his bike, he tries to imitate the thrill with video games featuring driving and motorcycling.
