– Guifré Obradors and Fernando Castillo are consecrated as the kings of Scooter and BMX in Lleida

– Sheka and Bboy Teo shine in the debut of the Breaking, while the Skateboard adapts to the whims of the rain

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 action started on Saturday 3rd with the scooter competition, where the level was extremely high and the top representative of scooter at national level, the young man from Navàs Guifré Obradors, showed why he is one of the fittest riders of the moment. With an overwhelming victory, he left his rivals in the dust and secured the first place on the podium. Hugo Llopart and Lucas Piqueras closed the podium of a high level competition that besides having the support of the Federació Catalana de Patinatge, showed the high level of scootering in Catalonia.

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

Sunday was a historic day for Esportcat Extreme, as Breaking made its official debut at the event. More than 45 athletes immersed themselves in the competition, attracting an enthusiastic crowd to the Lleida Skatepark. Three modalities were held: Kids, Junior and Bboy Pro. In each of them, the participants demonstrated their enormous talent and skill. Catalan breaking is booming and the future promises are ready to become the next Olympic representatives. In the Bboy pro category Sheka showed that her talent is unrivalled, winning with authority all her duels and getting the first victory of the season. Bboy Nestor and Bboy Jandro joined him on the podium. In the junior and kids categories it was Bboy Teo and Bboy Dylan who took the victory.

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.
