Time to get those 1080s dialled – the X Games is headed to Sydney.
In an announcement on the company's official website today, X Games has confirmed that the action sports extravaganza is coming to Olympic Park next October. The event will of course feature skateboarding, with Big Air and both men's and women's Street events up for medals. A Vert event will also be held, but only in demo format.
We're guessing that means there will be a legit MegaRamp setup at Olympic Park. Any takers?
More from X Games:
In 2018, X Games is coming to Sydney, Australia for the first-ever X Games event on Australian soil, featuring Skateboard, BMX and Moto X competitions at Sydney Olympic Park on Oct. 19-21, 2018.
For the first time in the event's more than 20 year history, an X Games event will take place in Australia, home to some of the world's best action sports athletes. Australian athletes hold 138 medals, 45 of which are gold from X Games summer and winter events.
In addition to world-class action sports competition, X Games Sydney will feature musical performances, art installations and a festival experience. The first Australian X Games will have a distinctly Australian flavor, showcasing the beautiful city and culture of Sydney in everything from the course designs to the medals, and highlighting the avid youth culture in Sydney throughout the festival village and live coverage.
How's that Sydney City skatepark coming along, then?
