He made his debut on the Kelme team where he spent most of his sports career.[1]

One of his successes as a professional was the bronze medal achieved in the 1985 Spanish Road Championship, held in Valladolid. It was only surpassed by José Luis Navarro and Peio Ruiz Cabestany, who were gold and silver respectively.

They love this city, the attentions of the people and, in addition, they enjoy the test. "They always emphasize to me the openness of the Valencian character. They are surprised, they tell me about it. They like to see how the city has grown. Valencia has magic".[4]
