Extreme Barcelona ends its 15th anniversary in style with a record attendance of 32,500 people over the weekend. The inclusion of extreme sports in the Olympics has undoubtedly given them the visibility they deserve, and their followers continue to grow. A key factor in the prevalence of extreme sports is the young talent and the need to provide them with the support they need to grow and develop.
Hot Wheels, the Mattel brand, knows the importance of this, and has therefore joined forces with the Urban World Series as an official sponsor, leading the junior competitions under the name Hot Wheels Superchargers in the three annual events: Andalucia Urban, Madrid Urban Sports and the most recent Extreme Barcelona.

They all share the same dream: to become like their idols and participate in the Olympics, and this involvement and commitment can be read in their eyes very easily. Something that also stands out in these young riders, is the similarity of values with the higher categories in terms of enjoying a healthy competition, without anger, and celebrating the victory of a teammate.
