He appeared for the first time in the Navarra and North Zone Championship and achieved second place. 2019, due to his age (16 years old) he has to leave the 85 and move on to the 450. He participated for the first time in the Spanish Championship and achieved third place. In 2021 the first race of the European Championship, held in Ortona in 2021, Ivan Lazzarini noticed him and in conversations with his manager Isabel and signed a contract for 2022.
The young rider said: “ This year I have had a great experience with L30 Racing TM. In the European Championship I enjoyed a lot, the Busca circuit was my favourite and with three Rounds there was no possibility of mistake. When I returned from winning the European Championship, the mayor of my town surprised me choosing me to launch the announcing rocket for the festivities in my town, Fontellas. It has been a great year with great results. Next year more and better!”
Ivan Lazzarini, Team Manager: “I’m very happy with Alex’s season, although it was all new for him he adapted to the bike right away and was very fast in all conditions. Now all we have to do is start preparation again and try to reconfirm what good we have done, the arrival of Alex in the team has also made our other standard-bearer Kevin Vandi grow, who will try to improve his position.”
