X Games reveals Global Expansion’s wide-ranging sports disciplines
X Games, the leading action-sports lifestyle brand on the planet, is just 45 days away from X Games Aspen 2013, and the launch of a new era in action sports competition around the globe.
ESPN today revealed its sports disciplines for 2013, fueled by a new six-event schedule — featuring eight sports, including, for the first time, Mountain Bike Slopestyle — and 26 disciplines that will originate from three new stops: Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil; Barcelona, Spain; and Munich, Germany.
Each stop will combine to showcase the most wide-ranging program of sports and disciplines in X Games history, including the addition of Mountain Bike Slopestyle (Munich), Women’s Skateboard Park (Barcelona) and the return of BMX Freestyle Dirt (Foz do Iguaçu).
Each stop will also include an enhanced on-site experience featuring new and unique lifestyle and cultural elements.
“It is awesome to see X Games not only take these sports to more cities globally, but I love seeing new sports added and the return of past, popular events,” said action sports icon and 17-time X Games medalist Travis Pastrana.
