Freesports Showcase for Clapham Common
- Urban Games back for another year of extreme thrills

SOME of the top skaters, BMXers, B-Boys and FMXers in the world are due to turn up on Clapham Common this weekend as the Sprite Urban Games rolls into town for its annual blast of freesport excitement.

Going on the huge crowds that have attended previous year's Urban Games, organisers expect tens of thousands of people to show up this year to watch some of the sports' big names under what looks like being a mostly clear sky.

The event kicks off on Friday with a BMX qualifying competition, followed by an FMX (Freestyle motorcross) showdown and ends on Sunday night with the BMX final.

In between, all types of pro-skaters and B-Boys (break dancers) add to the mix of what is proving to be one of the most vibrant events on the London calendar. There's also a public skate area for both BMXers and skaters.
