For more than a third of his life, Martín tested and reviewed new motorcycles and publishing articles in the most prestigious magazines and websites in Spain. Martín is also an experienced riding instructor and he has taught classes on the most famous MotoGP tracks in Spain. When “his girls” (he’s father of two girls) and his work obligations allow him, Martín likes to "take on the mountains" pedaling his mountain bike or playing Rock & Blues on one of his beloved guitars.
