X Games is the most exciting Action Sports Competition organized by ESPN since 1995.
In 1995, a little-known culture of diverse and passionate participants exploded onto the international stage when ESPN broadcast the inaugural Extreme games. Modeled on the Olympics, the Games brought a separated culture of athletes together for the first time then beamed their unique talents across the globe.
17 years, two seasons, and one name change later, X Games gives action sports fans the best of the best-the biggest names, most impressive venues, hottest fashions and top tricks and has become the biggest stage for the action sports lifestyle.
