After 11 consecutive years of hosting the Summer X Games, Los Angeles is saying goodbye to the action sports festival, which will be moving to Austin, TX for, allegedly, the next three years.

The decision to move the mega event, according to ESPN, was taken after AEG revealed its plans to build a football stadium next to L.A. Live.

But in 2013 the X Games has also changed its format, and is now making worldwide rounds in a six-stop tour, that started in Aspen, CO, then went to France, Brazil, Spain, Germany, and ends here in SoCal this weekend.

Unfortunately, this last leg will not include the Park category, which means we won’t be seeing the likes of Pedro Barros or Curren Caples.

The Street League Skateboarding series continues to be part of the X Games and the word is that Ryan Sheckler will be back, challenging Nyjah Huston’s dominance in the discipline.

In Vert, Bucky Lasek has a chance to make history and be the first skater to win a fourth straight gold medal.

Finally, in Big Air, Bob Burnquist will try to win his sixth X-gold in a row. Speaking of Bob, make sure to check out “Dreamland”, the latest video made at his backyard Megaramp where, as always, he continues to push the envelope.
