My name is Aaron Duque and I am 16 years old and I live in Cusco City. From when I was a small child I liked to ride my bike in fun places in the city (downhill etc.). One day my cousin bought me a new bike and we went to Huacoto to do the downhill route, this was when I was 14 years old and I did not have any idea what was downhill.
When I started going down at Huacoto I liked the feeling of adrenaline riding my bike in these dangerous tracks, from this day I liked to do downhill.
I started to enter competitions, unfortunately in my first competition I did not do so well so I could not go on the podium. This was a great motivation to train hard the advance to a better category. Next, I went to a race in Quillabamba and in this competition, I achieved second place and was able to go up on the podium.
From my first podium, I start to take biking more professionally, train more, achieved first and second place and my category.
