– Guifré Obradors and Fernando Castillo are consecrated as the kings of Scooter and BMX in Lleida
For the second year running, the city of Lleida has been invaded by the Esportcat Extreme challenges. The best Catalan skateboard, scooter and BMX athletes gathered at the city’s iconic skatepark to continue scoring points in their quest for the coveted places for the Extreme Barcelona event in an edition that also inaugurated the Breaking modality with the Lleida City Breaking Cup. In total, more than 70 athletes put themselves to the test in the various competitions held throughout the weekend.
A Saturday of pure adrenaline and a wallride of film
The second modality to take to the skatepark to put on a show was BMX. Known for its tricks in the Cash4Tricks format, it did not disappoint the audience. Fernando Castillo was one of the most solid riders of the competition, leaving everyone open-mouthed. Erick Rodriguez, Mohamed Bnsliman and Xavi Garrido also stood out in this adrenaline-filled format. But we have to make a special mention to Pol Palau, who, despite a shoulder injury, managed to perform the highest wallride of the whole competition in one of the most famous modules of the park, a real challenge for the brave. Unfortunately, the rain broke out on the day, forcing the cancellation of the skateboard competition scheduled for 5pm on Saturday.
Sunday to the rhythm of Breaking
This edition of the Esportcat Extreme in Lleida has been spectacular, and the premiere of Breaking has given it a special touch. The event has brought together the best Catalan athletes, but beyond the well-known names, we have also witnessed the emergence of promising young athletes who have demonstrated their talent in Lleida. It is crucial to encourage and support these new generations of athletes, who represent the future and the constant evolution of extreme sports in Catalonia.
