Antonio’s father is linked to the world of cycling, where he works as an anti-doping controller, and that union was awakening in the offspring of the family an attraction to the sport. Antonio remembers how his brother first started cycling and then he had his moment with a very small frame from the Decathlon sporting goods chain. He tried his hand at competitions from an early age, when he was just over six years old. “From the very first moment I was good at it, I won more than twenty races per season in the Schools category, and I was even champion of Castilla y León several times”, he says. The lack of cycling sports structures in Soria made him compete in a team from Burgos. And that dynamic will be repeated; in his first year in the cadet category, for example, he will compete with Quesos Albéniz from Navarre. “Between the fact that there are not many teams and that we are not geographically very well located with respect to places with many races, I opted to start 2019 competing independently, since in the cadet category from my point of view it is not strictly necessary to run with a team”. At the end of August 2019, he applied for a licence with the Club Ciclista Turiaso de Tarazona to be able to race in the Vuelta al Bajo Aragón. He arrived at the Contador Foundation after the 2019 Selection Campus and closed his passage through the youth structure with a brilliant victory in the Vuelta a Talavera. In 2022 he lived his first year in the U23 structure of the Contador Foundation.
