In 1984, the "Sindi" , the cute track in Parque Deportivo Puerta de Hierro in Madrid, hosted the greatest BMX event/race until the date... the FIESTA - GRAN PREMIO ZIMARRON - LA BICI. Zimarron was an spanish bike and plastic components maker,; La Bici was the most important spanish bike (mainly road bike) specialized magazine.
The organizers have promised free train trip and hotel for every rider, and big discounts for relatives. They never imagined the big success of this event. More than 800 riders from all Spain, travelled to Madrid to take part in this historical FIESTA !
Obviously, it was an unforgettable experience for all those kids. And for the organizers, too. No problem with trains as Renfe was the public company who paid it all. But hotel... it was supposed to be paid by the Comunidad de Madrid (but they expected arround 150 riders maximum)... After long discussions between parts and lawyers, organizers have paid a part, the Comunidad another, and the other... is still pending !! This was the official decal plate of the race.
