"Het winnen van deze prijs is een grote opstap voor mij. Het gaat mij en mijn bedrijf helpen om nog meer impact te creëren op de manier waarop mensen zich voortbewegen in Europese steden. In ben Spanjaard, en zeer vereerd hét Nederlandse exportproduct, de fiets, te vermarkten en met mijn bedrijf Nederland in Bangkok te vertegenwoordigen."
