The Central Park will host the UCI C1 Olympic qualifier, the Spanish BMX Freestyle Park Championships and part of the World Skate Scootering Pro Tour
The Street Plaza will host all skateboarding competitions, BMX Street and also the World Skate Scootering Pro Tour
Adrenaline and competition will reach epic levels at the 15th anniversary of Extreme Barcelona. From 15 to 17 September, the Parc del Fòrum will become the stage for the global elite as they battle it out in both qualifying competitions for the next Olympic Games and world-renowned competitions. All athletes will have their eyes on the prize: the gold medal. But that’s not all, some of these champions will also be fighting to accumulate precious points that will guarantee them a place at the Paris 2024 Olympics.
Competitions of such magnitude require a stage to match, which is why we have prepared two unique professional parks in Spain that meet the demands and needs of the best skateboarding, scootering and BMX athletes:
The Central Park: a runway of a runway
Extreme Barcelona’s 15th anniversary Central Park is a version of the park designed by Urban World Series for the Extreme Barcelona 2021 event. In that edition, the 2021 Scootering World Championships were also held in collaboration with World Skate. Given the enthusiasm among athletes, UWS has decided to present an improved version for both athletes and spectators. This Central Park offers a wide range of possibilities, with different elements such as fun boxes, spines, wallrides and quarters to bank, providing multiple options for transfers and manoeuvres for the athletes competing in the BMX Park Olympic qualifiers.
It will also host the UCI C1 BMX Park circuit that qualifies for the Olympics in the Men’s and Women’s categories, as well as the Spanish BMX Freestyle Park Championships in the Men’s, Women’s and Junior divisions.
In addition, this space will also be the territory of the World Skate Scootering Pro Tour athletes in the Park modality, a circuit that is laying the foundations to establish a global classification system, with a view to a possible integration in the Olympic qualification process and where the Man, Woman and Junior categories will be disputed.
Street Plaza: a new big section
The Street Plaza, as with every edition of the Urban World Series, features a completely new and innovative design. It features a newly incorporated Big Section with railings on both sides, providing athletes with the opportunity to perform normal, switch and frontside or backside tricks with greater ease. In addition, this section features a Hubba located in its centre.
This Big Section promises to witness some of the most impressive tricks, as well as offering flat rails, descents, kerbs and inclined surfaces, along with a wallride module that includes a transparent cage and an open space underneath – a photo spot for riders on the World Skate Scootering Pro Tour in the Street category, the most international Skate and the return of BMX Street.
