Eddie was born on 17th August 2003 in Huercal Overa, Andalucia, Spain he lives in Los Gallardos near Almeria and he is in the 6th year in Algor junior school he is bilingual in Spanish and English.
He started loving bikes from a very young age, he rode his pushbike at just 2 and a half without even trying it with stabilizers. He always loved his dads motorbikes or anything with an engine. At 3 and a half he got a quad for Christmas which he rode non stop sometimes falling asleep whilst riding it. After various children’s bikes he finally got a KTM pro junior for christmas in 2008 aged 5 . But his parents wanted to steer him towards a safer four 4 wheel carer , so he concentrated on kart racing for 12 months competing against children more than twice his age, and had to carry 29 kilos of lead to meet minimum weight. From an early age he showed a great talent on four wheels winning local meetings but his heart was still set on 2 wheels.
Karting seemed to keep him busy but he still wanted to race motocross after 2 years of non stop pestering he had his first motocross meeting on April 24th 2010 at age 6, where he finished 3rd over all in third round of the Murcian regional championship , culminating second overall in the championship despite missing the first rounds. He regularly finished in the top 3 in Uk nationals that year.
In his second year 2011 despite being only just 7 he switched to the 65cc category, disheartened by the endless mechanical floors with the smaller bikes, being too young to race the 65 in Spain he rode selected meetings in the UK. Finishing in the top 3 and concentrated on training. The director of training for Valencian Motocycle Federation Paco Rico, who 6 times Spanish national and Supercross champion granted a special dispensation for Eddie to race the final rounds, Eddie impressed him enough to be included into a small select group of riders who he trains on a weekly basis.
Yes You Can
In 2012 he competed in the Valencian championship probably the toughest regional championship in Spain, finishing second. Rode selected Red Bull meetings qualifying top 10 and second in a Super national and various club meeting wins.Not bad for a kid that should still have been on a 50!! Training throughout the winter of 2012 2013 has seen him go from strength to strength not only is he physcally more suited to the bike but has finally shook the gremlins from a huge crash he had whilst training 12 months earlier. He’s expected to finish on the podium in the Spanish championship and he thinks he can win Red Bull and the GT Cup
In 2013 he went on to win the GT Cup and finish 5th in the Red Bull Elite at still only 9 years old. It was a very hectic year juggling school worlk and travel to the UK for the race meetings.
In 2014 winning back to back GT Cup 65cc championship and the highest point scorer for the series, he also went on to win the Brtish Youth Championship at his first year of trying.
Represented the UK in the World Finals but unfortuately a bad accident in practice ruined any chance of a good result.
