The Madrid-born Pradas comes from the world of mountain biking, where he has always competed as part of one of the most established structures in the Community of Madrid in this discipline, MTB Cadalso, although during the 2022 season he has competed in road races with another Madrid classic, Unión Ciclista Coslada. “The truth is that I didn’t try road cycling until my first or second year as a child. As a cadet I did a few things, not many, but the more I’ve ridden, the more I’ve liked it. I couldn’t say why. The training sessions were a lot of fun and I liked the tension and excitement of the races,” he says. “At home we’ve always been more into mountain biking. My father is a mountain biker and my little brother, Fabio, who is two years younger, is also a mountain biker and seems to be following in our footsteps”, concludes Pradas, who confesses a small dream: “In 2030, which is such a round date, I hope to have the opportunity to ride the Tour de France”. “My mother”, concludes the Spaniard, “often asks me if I never get tired of watching bikes because on Sundays, which are the days when I can have the most rest, I like to take advantage of the time to watch races and broadcasts on my mobile phone or tablet. I like Mathieu Van der Poel and Wout van Aert, but especially Tadej Pogacar. The way he rides, the way he attacks, I love it”.
