A distant April 24, 2007, Bojan Krkic (32 years) made debut in the FC Barcelona, being one of the great soccer promises of that time. In 2011 he left Barcelona to go through a long list of clubs: Roma, Ajax, Stoke City, Mainz, Alavés, Monteral, Vissel Kobe… and since last December, When did he end his contract with the Japanese team?is without equipment. Meanwhile, from his home in Barcelona, he has in the cycling one of his great hobbies. recently saw the light GUAVA, a new bicycle brand born in Barcelona by NSN Ventures and Bojan is an important part of the project.
“I have always liked the bike, even as a means of transportation, but for about five years I love gravel modality. Always that I can I go out to do my routes ”, the Catalan told AS. “When it comes to football, it also serves as training for me, Because it does not have a physical impact, it allows you to travel many kilometers without damaging the body”. When he goes out to train, most of the time he goes unnoticed: “With a helmet, glasses… they don’t recognize me that much, but I like to socialize with people.” Andrew iniestawho was his teammate at Barça and in Japan, is also part of the project.
In his trajectory, bojan has traveled a long list of countriesand makes an assessment of the cities in which more bikes saw among its inhabitants, at least in its surroundings: “Montreal, Kobe, Barcelona obviously… It is seen that people use the bike a lot to get around. In my case, the good thing about using a gravel bike is that you can go to all kinds of places and it doesn’t give you any problems”. Of his colleagues in the past, there is one that also caught Bojan’s attention because of his love for riding a bike: “I was with Ibai Gómez (already retired) in Alavés and he goes out with her, but more with the one on the road”.
Bojan’s taste is more for the fact of doing this sport than watching it on television: “I don’t watch cycling races on TV, really. I’m more than practicing it. Before, she used to go more with the mountain one, but with the gravel I had a love at first sight, because I don’t train roller either. All outdoors. I use to do two or three hour routes, especially on weekends, but also on some daily mornings”. Without neglecting his soccer training, waiting if there is an offer that satisfies him, He will continue fully on both wheels: “I think that when I enter this project it will be to stay and that I continue to be linked to cycling. It is a good way to combine sport and social activity”. And warn…”I could participate soon to be in some marches. I’m going to prepare for it.” There it is.
