I was in California for X Fest and the summer X Games last year and will be going again this summer. It’s more of a festival than a traditional sporting event.
X Games are very television and internet-driven. Spectacle and high TV ratings are the goal â€” not necessarily finding the best athletes in each of the current summer sports:
* Freestyle BMX
I criticize the X Games for not including inline skating. This is the activity done by more of the spectators than any of the sports above. And it is more exciting than any of the current sports.
Also, I do not like acrobatics done on motor vehicles. This is simply too dangerous. I urge the X Games to drop MotoX.
