Always good to ride with my bro @edgartorronteras 🤜🏻🤛🏻.
I remember back around 2002 when i first met him at my first contest in Spain - Cordova.
I was a nobody, Edgar had already been the king of FMX for many years. Riding practice with no jersey and killing it.
At this first international contest i was nervous and things felt completely different in practice. I hardly did any tricks in practice. When the stadium was full and it was contest time I executed all my tricks perfectly while ET was fist pumping. I kept hunting down ET in contest around Spain for years. I’m thankfull to be there at the time while the level was high. The ET hunt shaped me into a international contenter in the early 2000. I left spain to ride the first night of the jumps in Nimés, and once again i was a nobody, with super baggy short where I managed to ride into an suprising second place, behind Mat Rebeaud i belive.
Just wanna give a big shoutout to Edgar for everything he has done for the sport (the euro godfather of FMX), as an athlete, entertainer and being my rabbit for years. You surtently are one of a kind in good and bad, still the crowd favouritte at almost 40 years old. Keep the wheels rolling brotha! Also thanks to @monsterenergy for extending our path together making us keep doing what we love. ...
