Born and raised in Madeira, this young man has dirt-bikes’ DNA implanted on him. João got his first motorcycle as a christmas gift from his parents when he was only 9. The learning curve was exponential, and on that same day he was already annoying his neighbors riding his Yamaha PW80.
Soon that passion for riding was channeled to the tracks where he started racing motocross at the age of 10, competing in the motocross regional championship, and has been riding ever since!
His background comes mostly from Motocross, but he has also raced in the Off-Road and Cross Country Championship of Madeira, which made him grow as a rider and as a local who knows the hills and mountains of the Island. Even though João has raced only as a hobby, he happens to be very patient and has a great deal of experience riding off-road, so you’re in luck if you are a beginner! 🙂
