Hi, my name is Homero Díaz. My discipline is enduro. My friends call me Homer. I was born on 10 September 1978 in Mexico. My special talent is BMX and surfing. My philosophy of life is try and be the best at everything you do. My favourite food is enchiladas. My favourite music is whatever I am listening to at the time.

Bio

Roaring around on a motorbike since the age of four, Mexican Enduro rider Homero Díaz has built a whole life around the world of off-road, two-wheel racing ever since. He’d already won his first race by the time he was eight and is not only a three-time National Mexican Enduro Champion, but also a three-time Latino-American title holder.

Homero's professional career really took off when he won the 2001 International Six Days Enduro race in France. He went on to take a further three gold medals in the competition. He now rides for the KTM Red Bull team and, as he was undefeated in all national races in 2010, is widely considered to be the top rider in his country.

Homero was crowned Mexican National Enduro Champion in 2008 and was understandably very pleased with his performance. This made him more confident and focused on the challenges that lay ahead. He has since continued to dominate the national Enduro scene, remaining the unbeaten Mexican national champion.
