On 17 and 18 June 2017, once again, Barcelona will be able to enjoy the festival that combines international competition with urban culture, music and other activities.
Six modalities and a great bet for the feminine sport
The imaginExtreme Barcelona continues betting on the different sports of action that arouse the interest of a wide group. This 2017 festival will feature a total of six different modalities such as the BMX, scooter, inline, longboard, streetboard and skateboard, the latter with a special focus by incorporating the BEO – Barcelona European Open -.
One more year the scooter mode will decide the world champion, since it is the final of the ISA (International Scooter Association) and will have the 60 best scooter riders in the world.
In addition, imaginExtreme Barcelona stands out for its great commitment to women’s sport. It is the European festival of action sports in which there are more urban sports in the female category (a total of four: BMX, longboard, inline and skateboard).
One of the main elements of the festival is that most of its competitions are pro + am championships, that is, professional riders with amateurs. In this way, a unique opportunity is offered to local and national athletes to demonstrate their value to the best competitors of each specialty.
More than competition
Beyond all the competitions that can be lived in the Parc del Forum, the imaginExtreme Barcelona is also a festival of urban culture. This means that attendees will be able to enjoy music, complementary activities, outdoor spaces to relax, eat in the food trucks, browse for the specialty shops in the Market and even practice in the open practice areas.
