"I want to battle it out"

José María Sánchez (BUFF®-Scott MTB Team) debuts with great enthusiasm in La Rioja Bike Race after having achieved a fourth position in Andalucía Bike Race presented by Caja Rural Jaén.

You face this sixth edition…

I face it with much desire and enthusiasm. I will go every day trying to be as high as possible, without pressure, but wanting to battle it out. We have a very balanced and competitive team, we will fight to be in the highest.


You stands out of La Rioja Bike Race…

It’s one of the most important stage races in Spain, something that ensures a very high sport level. The environment of La Rioja is very beautiful between vineyards and mountains, the image of the team also will be special because one of our team sponsors Marqués del Riscal has the race at home. It has some attractive routes for all, both professional Mountain Bikers and amateur riders who look for a personal challenge in the race.

New four-stage format ...

Without doubt, we will find some attractive and complete routes, and the four-day format is complete, with two relatively short stages and two marathon stages.

Your recommendation for those who debuts...

Try to dose the efforts since the stage races are several days and an excess in the first days can leave a dent for the rest of the stages.
