HONOR SPONSOR 2018
Edgar started riding a motorcycle in the same way as many of his peers, when he was small. Influenced directly by his father, this 33-year-old rider had his first motorcycle at 4 and just spent time from his first training sessions and his debut in competition, in the categories for children from all over Spain. Quite simply, Torronteras is a crazy (good vibes) of the 2 wheels and one of the pioneers of the FMX in Europe. His international motocross career, during the 90s, includes participation in the American AMA SX Championship and participations with good results in most renowned European events. But it seems that with that Edgar does not have enough. While competing in MX as a means to earn a living, the young rider started making his first steps at the FMX in 1995, but it still took him six more years to decide to make freestyle his life. Edgar's relationship with the Red Bull X-Fighters is long and distinguished and his name can be found on the list of entries of the first event in the history of the championship, held in 2001 in Valencia, where he finished in a fantastic second place. In 2002, Edgar won the Madrid event, in which he surpassed legends of the sport such as Mike "Mad" Jones or Mike Metzger, but due to an annoying number of different injuries he has not been able to take part in the contest since 2004, in which it finished in fifth position in the test of the capital of Spain. In addition to the FMX, Edgar can be seen on snowboards or wakeboards, practicing beatboxing, working with children who take their first steps in the MX and consolidating his facet as a DJ in Barcelona. That is, when he is not on the motorbike giving cane in the Bananaface training camp with his colleagues Andreu and Víctor.

This story begins in 1974 creating a group of friends the "Escudería el Puntal".
Rota has always had a great biker atmosphere, and its streets since the sixties could see all kinds of Japanese motorcycles and Harleys.
Continuing with the history, it was the year 1977 when it is given the name of Motoclub Roteño, the headquarters is a small garage in the street Pérez de Bedoya, next to the east wall. And for this date the first concentration of the motoclub is made in the pine forest in front of the fairgrounds.
In the following years there are winter concentrations in the Bercial area (settler settlement 10 km from Rota), and in Arroyo Hondo (Pinar de Rota).
Also for some years, the "Ruta del Vino" concentration was held at the end of the summer, but since the thing was warm, this party had to be left.
It was at the end of the eighties when the board of directors of the club called a general assembly and transferred the responsibilities to a new group of young bikers. The venue is moved to the Mayfe bar and the gatherings continue to be held as winter in February and in the fairgrounds.
