On this first day of competition we have also been able to see the innovations that are taking place in this 10th anniversary such as the RiftAnalyst Cup, the Dirt Jump or the Wakeboard.
Excitement and surprises in Saturday’s finals

In the last race, two of the favourites arrived and Sergi Nicolás finally won. After this they have continued with the first finals in Central Park. The girls have opened the Park with the Inline Women where 3 Spanish riders and 3 French riders competed. All the girls have shown a high level, but the Spanish have been in the top three positions, winning this final against all prognosis Sara Vilella. Next, the final of Streetboard with 8 finalist riders was held and Gabi Muñoz was on top of the classification since the first round, which revalidates the title he won last year here in Barcelona. Finally, another competition was held in the Cross area, this time was the Scooter where Brasyn Smith took the first place.
To close the day, the BMX final was held in the new Dirt Jump where there were last-minute changes when only 7 of the initial 20 riders competed because of the wind blowing in the facilities of the imaginExtreme Barcelona. Nil Soler, a local rider from Igualada, has won this competition by making a double backflip on the third attempt.
