Manresa (Barcelona), Spain

What do you do for work?

What year, and how old were you when you started flying?
1990, with 22 years

What other passions do you have, or activities do you enjoy?
At the moment I am into mountain biking, but since I was a kid I have been always connected with mountain sports: rock and ice climbing, skiing, snowboarding, speleology, etc. 

Why is flying important to you, and what does flying mean to you?
When I free fly I enjoy the challenge of seeing the same place differently, closing new triangles in my local site, Berga. In competition, I like to learn from the best pilots and share the winged moments with my friends. 

Flying Accomplishments.

  • In 2013, after a great week of flying in the PWC of Val Louron (France) I made it to the podium achieving the first position in the CIVL ranking. The next day, after traveling the whole night, I broke my femur taking off during the Spanish Open in Pedro Bernardo. After a long and difficult recovery, I think my biggest achievement has been to fly again, enjoy the flying and keep competing. Three years later I was back in the the first position of the CIVL ranking. 

Do you have any goals, dreams or plans for the next 1-2 years that you want to share?
My dream is to fly in Pakistan, but I would need to stop competing for a season.
