Los Angeles will host the final leg of the X Games Summer Tour 2013 this weekend, as extreme sports' brightest and best descend once again on the city that’s provided so many classic X Games moments over the years.
With Foz do Iguacu in Brazil, Barcelona in Spain and Munich in Germany having already hosted successful X Games events this summer, the finale in LA will need be something pretty special, and the inclusion of motocross racing and the Gymkhana Grid event – part of the stunt racing series devised by Ken Block – should see to that.
Look out for Travis Pastrana, who’ll be competing in the Ford Rallycross session with the aim of landing his 18th X Games medal, while in the Freestyle MotoX comp, 2012 Red Bull X-Fighters champion Levi Sherwood will be facing off against some of the biggest names in the sport to try and claim gold.
This weekend’s EnduroX session will also feature New Zealand enduro legend Chris Birch, who’ll be competing in his first ever X Games event alongside five-time Red Bull Hare Scramble winner Taddy Blazusiak, while in the MotoX Step Up contest, Ronnie Renner will return to LA’s Staple Center to try and beat his own record-breaking 47ft jump from last year in the MotoX Step Up competition.
