Urban World Series proudly presents “Building a Dream – Extreme Barcelona” documentary, a very special project.
A closer look of how the effort and dedication creates an event of this caliber and make the public enjoy, year after year, since 2008.
Extreme Barcelona celebrated its 15th anniversary in September 2023, Building a Dream Extreme Barcelona documentary shows how this the urban sports event, that is already a big part of the city of Barcelona, has evolved over the years to become one of the main urban sports events in Europe, and the World.
Over the years, we have seen how the event has been taking shape, forming champions who do not want to miss the event and have already formed its international seal. The road has not been easy but the passion of the team to pull the event always forward has made the event an indispensable date and marked on the calendar of all fans and new discoverers of these sports.
When Seven Mila held the 1st edition in 2008, urban sports were not very well regarded. There were practically no adequate facilities for their practice in the city, and riders who skated or rode their bikes on the streets were persecuted.
Now, more than 15 years later, in an Olympic year like 2024 where urban sports will be one of the key points in Paris, we did not want to miss the opportunity to present this great work to thank and show the team behind Extreme Barcelona. The evolution, how one of the most important and beloved events for everyone was created and lived from the inside.
Throughout these 15 years there have been many colleagues who have put all their desire, effort and dedication to create an event of this caliber. Make the public enjoy more and more each season. Through this documentary, we hope that all those who always accompany us and all those who are curious about these sports can discover part of the team that makes it possible.
