The male athletes, led by stars such as Jordan Clark and Lucas Di Meglio, promise a fierce showdown
In the women’s competition, Claire Parks and Mia Catalano will lead a group of talented riders in their quest for victory
Athletes confirmed for the World Skate Scootering Pro Tour are set to write a new chapter in scootering history. Extreme Barcelona, an event that transcends time, proudly celebrates its 15th anniversary and takes a leap into the future by teaming up with World Skate to be the first stop on the new “World Skate Pro Tour” circuit. This collaboration will not only raise the level of competition, but will also lay the groundwork for an exciting world ranking system, with the promise of a future Olympic qualification system. And yes, scootering seems to be marking its way towards an Olympic future.
The eyes of the world will be on the Parc del Fòrum, where the stars of the sport are set to go head-to-head in an epic setting. Two iconic venues, Central Park and Street Plaza, will witness three main categories: Men’s, Women’s and Junior. More than 150 confirmed athletes will not only compete, but also captivate the audience, who will fill the two impressive auditoriums of Extreme Barcelona.
In the Men’s Park, the focus will be on the top athletes on the scene. Jordan Clark, with his amazing track record, is the name that stands out. He has a total of six medals, five of them gold, at the Barcelona event. The question on everyone’s mind is whether he will manage to add another gold to his glorious collection. Also in the field are Jayden Sharman, Jamie Hull, Chris Farris and Esteban Clot.
Claire Parks, the world champion, arrives with the women’s title under her arm. But she won’t have it easy, as she will be up against some extremely talented opponents such as Lucy Evans and Mia Catalano. Catalano, a true eminence in Women Street, will compete in both categories, looking to establish herself as the most complete rider of today. We will also have the incredible Rebeca Ortiz.
In the junior Park class there will be Jack Walsh, Harriet Portugal, Bastien Brey and Omar Soto.
In the men’s Street class, Lucas Di Meglio is the man to beat. The French rider arrives as world champion and looks unbeatable. However, the local hope lies with Guifré Obradors, a Catalan athlete with courage and skill, capable of standing up to Di Meglio. In addition, other big names such as Kai Saunders of Australia, Jonathan Perroni of France, Matis Neyroud of Switzerland, Justin Carter of Australia and David Senkyr of the Czech Republic promise an intense and exciting competition.
In the women’s Street category we see again, Rebeca Ortiz, Mia Catalano and Claire Parks but we have the addition of Sophie Molyneux, who received bronze this year at the MUS.
Finally, in the junior street category, Sol Bodhi, Jan de la Romana, Luka Noel and Jules Boi will fight it out.
From 15 to 17 September, the scootering elite will gather at Extreme Barcelona. This event, which for the second year running is free for everyone, celebrates its 15th anniversary with an unparalleled range of competitions and activities.
Get ready to witness the greatness of these athletes confirmed for the World Skate Scootering Pro Tour.
