"My passion for climbing brought me into the trail running races.  I started to run when I was 21 but shortly after this I had a bad fall while climbing and I suffered a severe injury that made my doctor believe I would never be able to compete again.
I did other sports instead and studied to become a fireman. Step by step, I also started racing again, and in 2011 I took part on my first ultratrail (Cavalls del Vent), where I won. I also defeated all the medical predictions! From there, I became a profesional trail running athlete when in 2012 I won the Ultratrail World Champion. From there until now I’ve had the opportunity to run in beautiful places around the world and win 2 times the Ultra Trail World Tour and also great races such as the Transgrancanaria, Ultra Pirineu, Diagonale des Fous or l'Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. I will run until the day I don’t enjoy it anymore!"
