Orbea Enduro Team

“The adrenaline is back!

ABOUT US

This group of riders and partners has been assembled to tackle a full season of the world’s most important competitions in a discipline we’re all passionate about. Our aim is to let you experience EWS competition from the inside, fighting for the podium in the spotlight of the biggest international events.

Enduro is not new to Orbea or our flagship Rallon, but 2018 marks the birth of our full commitment to the EWS in the form of the Orbea EnduroTeam.

“When I was a kid I dreamed of being an airplane pilot”

ABOUT ME

“If you asked me what I wanted to be when I was a kid, I would have told you “airplane pilot,” but now I fly in a different sense. When I’m on my bike, I’m riding to transform my dream – to win Ironman Hawaii a second time – into reality. To achieve this, I train 30 hours per week and ride 15,000 kilometers per year.

Triathlon is a great sport that combines swimming, cycling and running in one “man-to-man” race and every finish in an Ironman is a personal achievement, whether you win it or not.

Off the bike what I enjoy most is spending time with my wife and two boys. Out of competition I’ll allow myself to indulge in some good wine and my favorite Italian food.”
