David Millar created the Rocacorba Velo Club with clothing manufactured by prestigious Rapha.

“Rocacorba is a beautiful mountain, rising up out of the gentle rolling Catalunya landscape surrounding Girona. The road that snakes up it is brutal, at times bringing the best climbers in the world to grapple with their bikes. To reach the top of Rocacorba offers a sense of achievement few mountains can match. Climbing for climbing’s sake; that’s what Rocacorba is about“ – David Millar
