New this year?
After three years in downtown Austin, Texas, the Summer X Games makes the scene in Minneapolis in 2017 at the US Bank Stadium - home of the NFL Minnesota Vikings!
year since 1995, athletes from around the world have arrived at
the X Games to show off their latest moves and tricks as they
compete for medals and prize money in such sports as skateboarding,
rally car racing, motocross and BMX.
Game fans are also treated to an annual entertainment extravaganza featuring a rockin' music festival and in-your-face meetings with
famous athletes, game demos, and other special events.
