I got the chance to check out the first Austin X Games held at the Circuit of the Americas. When I think of X Games I think extreme; and they delivered. There were events in BMX, Skateboarding, Moto X, RallyCross and a lot more. They had go-kart racing, dodgeball, zip lining, major league gaming, and there was even a section for kids. It was pretty awesome seeing so many little athletes train for future X Games on their own mini courses. I had to do a double take when I passed by a booth called Barbershop where people were getting X Games decals shaved into their hair. They even had a great line up of music such as Kanye West, Flaming Lips and Gary Clark Jr.
If you didn’t get a chance to go this year, you’re in luck! The X Games will be coming back to Austin for the next three years. I highly recommend looking into the upgraded seats for your favorite events. Check out the pictures below of this year’s X Games to tide you over until then. I can’t wait to go again, next summer can’t come soon enough!
