Biography

Born in the town of Quesada in the province of Jaén, Vilches began his love affair with this sport relatively recently. “My love of cycling began around the age of 15. I played football then, but I saw my brother José Ángel going out with the neighbours to ride the mountain bikes and I was jealous of not being able to go. One weekend all of us football friends got together and went to climb El Chorro, which is a fifteen kilometre climb not far from here. We spent the whole morning, without hurrying and with the sandwiches on our backs. From then on I fell in love with this sport and started to go out a little more regularly. I wanted to get in shape to go out with my brother and his friends”. But as time went by, these outings between friends led to appearances in high competition. In 2017, in fact, he won the Spanish Bikemarathon championship and the Spanish Open of this discipline in the U23 category. “It was not until I was 18 that I bought my first road bike. It was no big deal, I spent 200 euros or so. I liked it very much. I went out with people from the area, we went to ports… And the truth is that one of the things that motivated me most to continue was to see Alberto Contador in the Angliru in the year of his retirement”. In 2019 he completed his first season in the U23 category, a campaign for which he signed with Team Extremadura from Zafra.
