From the presidency of the UCI, Puig got his beloved Valencia to organize the World Championships of Cycling of 1992, which would not witness finally. The Valencian institutions agreed that the modern Sports Pavilion that was built for the occasion, with capacity for 6,000 spectators, should be baptized as Velodromo Luis Puig Palace. The venue has also hosted the European Indoor Athleticsof 1998, the European Swimming short of 2000 and the 2008 World Indoor Athletics.
The Valencian leader couldn´t enjoy the historic climax of Spanish sport neither: the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992, in which Valencia was one of the sub-headquarters. Puig was for many years a member of the Spanish Olympic Committee (COE), and he could not celebrate at home the 22 medals that still make the best participation of Spain in the Games. From the thirteen gold medals won by the Spanish Olympic team, one went to Jose Manuel Moreno, Olympic champion in track cycling of 1km time trial mode.
A year before the Olympics, Miguel Indurain had inaugurated the most laureate stage in the history of Spanish cycling. The 21st of July of 1991, the cyclist from Navarra first climbed to the drawer of the podium on the Champs Elysees in Paris, something that he would repeat in the next four editions of the Tour de France. The five consecutive wins of Indurain rose cycling to a central position in the Spanish sports scene. The challenge that Luis Puig pursued since the beginning of his career had really fulfilled.
