Miguel Morrás Mangado,
Pamplona, (Navarra), Spain

I was born in the Spanish city of Pamplona, renowned for the Running of the Bulls and made world famous by the writings of Hemingway. I spent the beginning years of my childhood in Paris, France and after 6 years, I moved back to the picturesque town of Sesma near Pamplona.

From a young age I have been active in many sports: running, judo, swimming and specially football. I first played in France with the local team at Nogent-Sur-Marne in Paris and eventually I became the striker of C.D.Izarra from Estella (Spain); where I was selected for Navarra Regional Team in football and reached the semi-finals of the Spanish Championship in the under 16 league.

As a cyclist l raced for C.C. Estella, Banesto and O.N.C.E. Deutsche Bank, achieving a series of victories that you will see in the next page.
