Riding coach Sam Tamayo recently uploaded photos of Aquino’s session, with the caption: “Early morning assessment session with @jose_liwanag and it’s very productive! He’ll be flying sooner than expected.”
Before the award-winning actor, Tamayo had already taught the likes of Xian Lim, as well as Richard Gutierrez, his wife Sarah Lahbati, and their son Zion.
The LTO-accredited instructor shared to Top Bikes Philippines that the actor took some off-road lessons to enhance his skill using a road bike
“Advanced si Carlo. He has toured his 1200 around Luzon to Vigan in the past. Magaling siya,” Tamayo shared.
He arrived at MMF with his partner Trina Candaza, with whom he has a daughter. According to Tamayo, Candaza was fully supportive of Aquino’s passion for riding.
Coach Sam added,:“Kwento (nga nila), they used to ride together a lot. She backrides (with) Carlo lagi, and even went to Vigan together. However, now na meron na (silang) baby, they thought baka delikado if something happens to both of them during ride. Walang mag-aalaga kay baby.”
Stay safe and ride responsibly!
