Miguel has been a revelation in his first season racing in the UK. The former professional AMA Motocross rider and national boxing champion switched to BMX racing only 3 years ago.
Carrying with him the ambition and fearless style that served him well in Motocross he moved to London in 2018 to further his BMX racing career. Training with the hotbed of UK BMX talent at Peckham he's progressed rapidly.
In his debut UK season he won both the National and British Titles along with fifth at the European Championships. Currently back in his native Portugal, he's training with the National team at the countries Olympic facility where he's targeting more success in 2020.
