No brakes and downhill. The Scooter World Championships are underway and no one can stop them. Friday’s day has left us several open fronts: on the one hand, the qualifiers of Scooter Street men and, on the other, the semifinals of Scooter Park women.
While waiting for the public to arrive on Saturday, the riders gathered in the stands of Central Park and Street Plaza were thrilled by the spectacular performance of these athletes, who are predicting a great show for this weekend.
Britain’s Lucy Evans dominates women’s semis
The first women’s scooter semifinal held at Extreme Barcelona has exceeded the level expected from these great athletes. You can tell that they are taking this championship very seriously.
Lucy Evans has been the best classified, getting a 89.33 in her best round, complete, consistent and with a lot of flow. In addition, the British rider has been able to combine different tricks in each jump, such as the briflip whip in one of her steps through the big funbox.
In second place and very close to Lucy, with an 88.00, the American Mia Catalano has qualified. Another round to frame in these great semifinals. High in her tricks, an incredible inward in the funbox and completed with combos like the triple bar. Mia has the gold between eyebrow and eyebrow.
The third place went to Jessica José, and the great favorite and reigning world champion Beca Ortiz got the fourth position. Is she saving herself for the final? For the moment, she has given us a backflip for the gallery.
Scooter Street and a qualifier that looked like a final
The favorite has not disappointed. Lucas DiMeglio is in all the pools to be the next world champion and so far, he is proving it. Last year he took silver and it is a thorn in the side of the French rider, who gives no one a break. A 93.67 in the qualifiers, and a round that could be worth a gold medal.
Switzerland’s Matis Neyroud and Denmark’s Christian Jensen closed the top three positions.
En cuanto a los españoles papelón de el más irreverente del Street Plaza. Carlos Ravello lo tiene todo para colarse de nuevo en una final, flow, power y muchas bombas en su manga. Pol Román y Guifré Obradors le acompañarán en las semifinales de mañana.
