Miguel Martinez returns to road pro at 46

Twelve years after retiring from the group, Miguel Martinez decided to resume his professional career at 44.

A good bet for the Olympic mountain bike champion in 2000, who will race with the colors of the Continental Atria-VS Gerzatois team together with his brother Yannick. He will have an Elite card or, in bureaucratic terms, Elite without a contract.

At 46, Miguel Martinez will still be in the group. After having raced between 2002 and 2003 in the top category (Mapei and Phonak), Martinez returned to the group in 2008 with the Amore & Vita jersey, a team that had given him back the opportunity to race in 2020, a year marred by the pandemic.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
