This year’s summit of extreme sport is concentrated at the X Games Barcelona from 16th to 19th of May. Barcelona will have the greatest skateboarding, BMX, Moto X and Rally figures such as Travis Pastrana, Pierre-Luc Gagnon, Kyle Loza or Marcus Gronholm, in an event that has become an icon of the extreme sports competition. But X Games are not only extreme sport; they also are linked to music, fashion and urban art. They are a lifestyle, in essence.

Beyond the competition, there will be an area for fans located in the heart of the city where young riders will be able to take part in different activities; the X Fest, a shopping area open to the public; and the X Music, a concerts program in which the most recognized groups of the moment, such as the hip hop band 50 Cent, the rapper Nach and the Russian DJ and producer Zedd, will take part in.

For another year X Games are anticipated as an extreme show that will feature stratospheric jumps, frantic skids and impossible tricks!
