Has that Olympic medal changed your life?
I can now do things that I have never done before and my life has changed a lot, but my personality hasn't changed a bit.
You tattooed the Olympic rings on your body, what would you tattoo if you win the Tour de France?
The Olympic tattoo was just a bet with my friend Juan Llaneras. I think I won't tattoo anything, but I believe that you always have to live up to your promises.
What are your goals for this season?
I want to be good in the first part of the season and then I can start to train for the Vuelta and the World Championships.
This winter you have been able to train in a wind tunnel in San Diego. Do you think Spain should invest more in these kinds of technology so more riders could use it to shine?
It would seriously be a good thing because it was a great opportunity for me!
Would you think about changing your career, like Valentino Rossi?
Since I was a child, I've always loved motorcycles, but I want to finish my life as a cyclist. I would love to ride on circuits with a motorcycle or a car but only as a hobby.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Spending time with my family and friends
