Born and raised in Madrid, Gomez got his first BMX bike at the age of seven, but only fell in love with doing freestyle tricks on it at the age of 14. By 17, he had registered for his first international competition as an expert level competitor. He won this, and there was no looking back. Gomez has since won the European Championship twice, the Asia Championship twice and Red Bull Circle of Balance, among others.

As previously described by him, Gomez’s method of facing flatland is almost philosophical. He defines his sport as “a fight between mind, gravity and physics combined with movement inertia. A way of surpassing the limits of your imagination”.
