I’m Miqui, I’m from Girona and I’m 24 years old, totally passionate for bike racing and even more if it’s fixed gear.

K: How did you get into riding?

M: I got into riding when I was a kid just doing some mtb with my brother, after that I started doing some freestyle, bmx and stuff like that. When I was around 15 I started racing motorbikes but after a few years I just got tired of it. Then somehow in 2014 I discovered what a fixed gear was, so I got a old vintage road bike, turned it into a fixed gear bike and started using it as a transport method. In 2015 I discovered what the Red Hook Crit is and I decided to train for it. In October 2015 I bought my first road bike, went out for a ride, and since then I just couldn’t stop riding.

K: How did you get involved with Team Espresso Mafia à BLOC?

M: Well I didn’t get involved with Espresso mafia team, actually I kinda built the team together with Christian Meier after Red Hook Brooklyn 2016.

What’s it like riding for Espresso Mafia à Bloc team? I can just tell you that two of our sponsors are coffee and beer, what else can you ask for?

M: Well to be honest I crash a lot, I even crashed on the rollers warming up for Red Hook Crit London... that was pretty embarrassing!

M: Car Park Cannon Ball it’s really exciting and I had a lot of fun in Eindhoven! I was going really good until I crashed, as usual, but this time wasn’t my fault...

K: If you had to choose between beer and bikes?

M: If i had to choose between beer and bikes?... sorry I can’t answer that question, I don’t know what you mean haha.
