In 2016, he was one of the dominators in the junior category, with victories at la Vuelta al Besaya (Spain) and the Volta a Loulé (Portugal). He was vice national time trial champion and national pursuit champion. After completing a very good first U23 season, his second year in the formation in the structure was characterized by a formidable teamwork in which he put in place his maturity as a cyclist and his “engine”. Viegas, not surprisingly, has excelled in all areas and has shown his qualities since he started showing off with his previous team, C.C. Bairrada, still as a junior. He has two older brothers, Abel and Rute, but he is the only one who followed in the footsteps of his father, Carlos, who became an amateur with Centro Ciclistico Loulé. He started at the age of 8 at Terras de Loulé Mountain Bike Club, from where he moved on to cadets at José María Nicolau and Bombarral. He finished his middle school studies and has a course in Cooking and Pastry. Now he devotes himself exclusively to cycling, but does not rule out continuing his culinary studies. In cycling, he especially likes the great classics, such as Paris-Roubaix, which he dreams of racing one day. The victory he carries in his heart is the one at the Vuelta Besaya in 2016, as a junior. He loves pizza and given his studies as a pastry chef, he loves to cook when he has time. His heart place is Loulè (his hometown) because a cyclist is so far away from home that it’s always great to go back to where you came from and meet family and lifelong friends.
