The 23rd edition of the X Games will start tonight. A long tradition that has started in 1995 will continue this year in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the home town of four times World Supercross Champion, Ryan Dungey. Over 200 athletes will try to mark their names in the history books of extreme sports.
Ricky Carmichael, Dave Mirra, Bob Burnquist or Tony Hawk. Some of the few legends that have rocked the X Games throughout the years are expecting another guys to step up their game this year. The schedule will start on Thursday night with the BMX Vert and Skateboard Vert as the rest of the schedule is still yet to be determined.
Many other races will be held in the four days, as the BMXers, MTBers, skateboarders and motocross riders will try to get their hands on the coveted gold medals.
