Volcom and Euskaltel present the La Kantera Invitational 2018, which will be taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of June at Bilbao's OG scenic shred zone.

Watch last year's highlights for confirmation of the enjoyment there is to be had and go check out the Bilbao Exposed and Bilbao Points of Interest article for an idea of what else is to be had in the area...
