It was in 2016, when he was a sophomore, that he started to take the bike much more seriously. Until then, competitions had not been a priority. He was also an atypical cyclist, as he came from the world of basketball. In a childhood with not a few sporting inclinations, the basketball universe had seduced him the longest. “I played basketball since I was eight years old,” he recalls. “I was on the team here in Cabrera de Mar. My position was point guard. We played all over the area. I was part of a team from the Maresme region and there was a time when I even considered playing outside, on a team from outside. After a few seasons at the Club Ciclista Iluro de Mataró, without any pressure or very clear goals, he went on to the Club Ciclista Mollet and there his cycling side intensified. Eduard, who has temporarily parked his university studies in Economics and is passionate about the world of Nutrition, a subject on which he has a degree, now faces his fourth year as an under 23. “What kind of cyclist am I? I don’t dare to pigeonhole myself. I consider myself a team cyclist, a worker, a worker. If I have to choose a specialty, when I’m in shape I defend myself well in the climbs. In general I like hard races, I also like the cold. And in the race I think that I am able to compete well in situations under pressure, with cunning, I know how to think ‘hot'”.
