Watch all the live action from Almeria (BMX, Breaking & Scooter) on:
The European Breaking Championships will be the highlight on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May, as more than 300 breakers will battle to become the king and queen of Europe.
Athletes can also earn ranking points towards Olympic qualification, as the sport will make its debut at Paris 2024 on the iconic Place de la Concorde. 32 breakers: 16 B-Boys, and 16 B-Girls will battle for glory as the first Olympic medals in the dance sport are up for grabs.
Day one of the breaking action at the Andalucia Urban Live event in the port of Almeria will see B-Boys and B-Girls battle it out for a place in the Top 16 which will guarantee them passage to the second day.
Day two will begin with a round robin stage to slim 16 down to eight and the finals will begin. It will be winner-takes-all knock-out competition until only one victorious B-Girl and one winning B-Boy remain.
