CRISTINA GUTIÉRREZ

``To achieve your goal, listen to what the heart chooses and commit to living it with passion``

Cristina Gutiérrez was born into a family dedicated to medicine. At the age of 6, her parents gave him her first motorcycle, starting a love story with the engine that would accompany him for the rest of her life. After many years of effort and learning, in 2010 she participated in her first test as a pilot, with her brother in the next seat. It would not take long after her debut to begin to show her talent behind the wheel, as from 2011 she would be the absolute dominator of the Spanish TT rally championship in the women’s category. Six consecutive wins while opening up other ambitions for the young Burgos rider.

The raids would be that other territory to explore. In 2016, Cristina took part in the Sealine Cross-Country rally in Qatar, taking the victory in the women’s category and anticipating what her jump to the Dakar would be like. In that test she came across a name that a few years later would remind her again as a reference to her success: Jutta Kleinschmidt.

In the great endurance test of the motor world is where she has shown all her potential, finishing the five tests in which she has taken part (4 in cars and 1 in side by side) and writing her name in the history; In January 2021, Cristina became the second woman of all time (after Kleinschmidt) – and the first Spanish woman – to achieve a stage victory in the legendary rally. An even more exciting feat considering that just two months before she herself had not been able to attend the test.

After her surprising performance in the 2021 Dakar Rally, in which she made history by winning the first stage, she embarks on a new adventure in the first edition of the Extreme E, sharing a team with the legendary Sébastien Loeb.

For with the charts of all four oceans before him, Ahab was threading a maze of currents and eddies, with a view to the more certain accomplishment of that monomaniac thought of his soul.
