He is so passionate about cycling, it was the theme of his own wedding ceremony : tables had the names of his teams, people wore the jerseys of his teams, cyclists’ friends formed a guard of honour, etc. Currently in charge of the cycling department in the Decathlon store of Badajoz, Jose cycled through Spain for work or cycling races.
For Jose, his work is a great passion, and Decathlon is the best place to practise and develop cycling :
« It all started as a job, and became a fairy tale that changed his life. As I was working at the Decathlon store in Badajoz, I visited my mother who told me : “My son, I am so happy, I haven’t seen you so happy for years. You are like in your youth, with sparkles in the eyes”.
This is what working at Decathlon means for Jose : happiness that changed his life.
Today, Jose works at Decathlon, he is number 1, in the national overall ranking in the Master 30 category, and has created his own road cycling team with 4 friends, their name is Kazajoz. It goes without saying their color is blue. Kazajoz has grown very quickly. So quickly, Decathlon already sells clothes with his own name.
What kind of future ? « I would like to give something in return and create a social club where i can help children, and pass on the values i learned: Improving yourself, the team spirit and the great energy. Cycling as a sport offered me everything. » Jose can be sure of this : he gives so much to cycling.
