Speaking about the new venture, Nogues said, "I've been a Freestyle rider for 10 years, and I worked hard at developing and expressing an individual, classy riding style. I think it made a difference. Being a Freestyle rider for MV Agusta gives me the opportunity to fully realise this aspiration. It's like a dream. For me, MV bikes are the most beautiful bikes in the world. An MV bike is like no other bike, you need to feel it, it's like a dance partner. I'm so proud to ride MV Agusta bikes and super excited about the future with the Freestyle Division.
