X Games Los Angeles Goes Out in Style


ESPN’s Summer X Games will have its final run in Los Angeles August 1-4. LA has been the Summer Games host City since 2003 and will exit in style. The extreme sporting event is adding a second venue located at the Irwindale Event Center, this in addition to its downtown setup at the Staples Center and the Event Deck at L.A. Live. Irwindale will be the site for GoPro BMX Freestyle Big Air, America’s Navy Skateboard Big Air, Ford RallyCross, and the debut of Gymkhana GRID – a racing series inspired by Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos.

The highlight of the 2012 X Games for us was when Ronnie Renner broke the record in the Moto X Step Up by 10’!

This year fans should be excited about the return of Moto X Racing to the event line-up after a two-year hiatus and the new discipline of Gymkhana GRID that pits drivers in one-on-one races featuring the spins, drifts, and twisting turns.

All X Games tickets will be sold separately. Last year ESPN X Games tickets averaged $111 to watch the world’s premier skaters, BMX riders, and motorcyclists took over L.A. Live. In 2013, tickets are cheaper averaging $61 for the Irwindale events and $88 for the downtown Los Angeles events.
