X GAMES MUNICH
Now it’s time for a brand new event to make its debut –X Games Munich!
For the first time ever the X Games are coming to Germany! From 27 to 30 June, the Munich Olympic Park in the heart of Bavaria’s regional capital will be rocked by four days of world-class action sports, top live concerts and countless side events featuring everything from film and fashion to arts and design. As well as the sports events held in some of the city’s most iconic locations, X Games Munich will also showcase Bavarian art, culture and cuisine as part of the Cultural Elements programme.
There are few cities where tradition and progress are as closely linked as they are in Munich. This spirit will also play an important role at X Games Munich, which will make history in 2013 by becoming the first ever X Games to feature the discipline of Mountain Bike Slopestyle.
Created by the television network ESPN, the X Games were first held in 1995 and have continued to set new standards in the field of action sports ever since. Today, the X Games are the biggest and most significant action sports events on the planet, with athletes from all four corners of the world coming together once a year to redefine what is possible and push the laws of physics to the extreme. Each summer for the past 11 out of 18 years more than 200 international athletes from the fields of Skateboard, BMX , Moto X and Rally Car have gathered in Los Angeles for the X Games.
