Marco Barbosa Athlete Ambassador
Marco is a young cyclist who has big dreams. He talks to Sundried about training and racing.
Have you always been into sport?
Yes, I've been into sport from a very early age. I started with football but ended up moving to cycling.
What's been your favourite race to date and why?
My favourite race was in October last year, it was a tough race with some technical areas but I ended up doing well.
What's your proudest achievement?
I have no favourite achievements, my achievements are being able to evolve day by day.
Have you ever had any racing disasters/your toughest race yet?
Unfortunately, it was my first race. I was 11 years old and I had to quit halfway through because I wasn't prepared.
What advice do you wish you'd received when you first started competing?
I wish I had received advice from more experienced people who could share their wisdom with me.
What are your goals?
My goals are to get better every day, not only as an athlete but also as a person.
Who do you take inspiration from?
I've always seen the World Tour and I really admire Valverde and Contador for everything they represent for cycling.
What do you like about Sundried and what's your favourite bit of our kit?
I honestly like all the products but my favourites are Sundried Stealth Bib Shorts With Side Pocket and Sundried Stealth Men's Cycle Jersey and Sundried Zero Men's Thermal Cycle Jacket.
