Today we talk to Armando Cortez Ortega. He has been practicing canine sports for 10 years with great impressive performances and results in Canicross, Bikejöring, Rig and Sleds.

Q1. Hello Armando, it seems that you have created great interest in the World Cup in Mexico. Before we get to the key questions, all World Cup competitors want to know a few other questions... So the first thing is what do you like about canicross?

A1 What I like the most is running with my dogs, enjoying from the exact moment where we join the line, that the mind and heart become one. The bond that I have created with my shooting dogs is unique, we know each other too much to the point of knowing that we think about the key moments in competition.

Q2 So the next question is easy, what are the things you don't like about canicross?

A2 People who only do it to win and not to care and respect their dogs.

Q3 What are your canicross ambitions for the future?

A3 More than ambitions, I think it is a close goal, I want to represent Mexico in a Dryland or a sled competition with my dogs. I have the best dogs in the world!

Q4. OK.... to the inside information. Do you have any thoughts about approaching a knockout competition for the first time?

A4 Well, the theme they handle is interesting and how each one can qualify and get on a podium at an international level.

Q5. Do you think there are things to be careful of during the tournament?

A5 The care of our figures and the true athletes that are our dogs.

Q6. Without giving away the game. Do you think some strategies will work better than others?

A6 The best strategy is the bond we have with our dog.

Q7. How do you think you will prepare both mentally and physically for a tough knockout competition?

A7 The link is the preparation for the competition, getting to know each other and knowing how we are at the time of the competition.
