In February, the leading French brand, Decathlon, selected La Nucia´s bike park for reformational test days.

Decathlon´s new Rockrider 940S bike started its engine in the bike park of La Nucia, with international sportspeople and press gathering to witness the brand´s latest product.

The bike tested is the first-ever model of Decathlon´s high-end mountain bike, driven by bikers including the Frenchman, Maxim Marotte and the American, Savilia Blunk: competitors of the World Cup.

For three days, journalists from across the globe reviewed the new Rockrider 940S, leaving a mark in La Nucia´s sports history.

The town is one the most popular sports locations in Spain, as its trails, orography and weather conditions make utilities like the town´s bike park, the top chosen location for renowned sportspeople. 

La Nucia has been not only expanding its sports facilities but also developing Spain´s relationship with other countries, now becoming a universal benchmark for mountain biking.
