INTENSE becomes exclusive bicycle sponsor of the 4 RIDERS BIKE PARK in Avia, Barcelona.
Great news for the start of 2021. We’ve teamed-up with the awesome 4 RIDERS BIKE PARK in Avia (Spain). The town of Avia lives and breathes the outdoors and extreme sports. Located 100km north of Barcelona it has a rich history in mountain biking, having been the venue for multiple National and European downhill races since way back in the 1990s. Not only that, but Avia is also the home to 5 x Dakar Champion Marc Coma and is one of the best paragliding destinations in the whole of Spain.

Jordi Junyent is the man with the plan and he leads the 4 RIDERS BIKE PARK project. It is less than 12 months since the park opened and in that time it has become a benchmark in Europe for its quality and variety. The project was born from Jordi's motivation to create a bike park made by riders, for riders. As Jordi explains, “Our philosophy is to create the best trails and keep them in great shape all year round. We believe that having the trail in optimal condition is the key in any bike park. We value every last detail and take care of the aesthetics of our tracks.”
The collaboration is born from the values that INTENSE and 4 RIDERS BIKE PARK share – a passion for mountain biking, racing and quality. Values that we especially want to share with all of the riders who come to have a good time at the bike park. We can also announce that we are working together to create a new red trail that will be called ‘INTENSE’ to add to the three current tracks: the blue, red and black.
Bernat Guardia, INTENSE Europe Marketing Manager, comments, “I have been watching the progress of the bike park for more than three years, when the only thing there was a mountain with lots of possibilities and infinite hours of work ahead. Jordi and I share a common passion for downhill, and without a doubt I see this reflected in the bike park. With the short time that they have been open they have managed to become the favourite bike park of many people, myself included. And I am proud to be involved in INTENSE’s first partnership with a bike park in Europe.”
