Everything is bigger in Texas, so get stoked for a huge X Games Austin. ESPN, the creator of this mega event, chose the Texas capital to host the X Games summer competition for the next four years at the new 1,500-acre Circuit of The Americas sports and entertainment complex. The games plus a stellar live music line-up, will rock the city from June 5-8, 2014.
Expect the inaugural X Games Austin to be bigger and better than ever as the event is drawing action sports fans, families and future lil shredders from across the nation to witness over 200 athletes compete. Skateboarding, BMX, Rally, Moto X and for the first time, the discipline of Stadium SUPER Trucks will be showcased.
But for those who can’t make it to the Lone Star State, there will be extensive televised coverage and a huge social media presence—there’s even an official app. Fan favorite co-hosts Louie Vito and Brandon Graham will return to the X Games along with analysts Tony Hawk, Jeremy McGrath, Kevin Robinson and more. ESPN will deliver four hours of compilation programming on Sunday, June 15 featuring highlights from Austin to make sure you get enough fast-paced fandom.
The X Games Austin telecast schedule kicks off on ESPN with the BMX Vert Final competition Thursday evening. This is the perfect way to kick-off summer and with music by headliners like Kanye West and the Flaming Lips, come for the Games, stay for the party…
