Damn hot off the press, X Games just announced that they will be including BMX in their 2016 Real Series competition. While it remains unclear if a BMX Street event will go down this year at X Games, I am excited to see what riders go head to head in this video competition coming in September of 2016. Make the jump and watch the trailer to find out more!
“After a successful 2015 campaign, X Games will host five new Real Series competitions in 2016 as part of the expanded content offerings provided by World of X Games on ABC. HOT POCKETS® brand sandwiches, has signed as the presenting sponsor for the series. For the first time, the 2016 Real Series event lineup will include Real BMX. Additionally, the Real Ski competition will shift focus this year from backcountry riding to skiing in urban environments.
Each Real Series competition will culminate in a one-hour World of X Games show that will premiere on ABC and feature behind-the-scenes athlete interviews and selection of the medalists. Like past Real Series competitions, each athlete will have the opportunity to team with an editor on the production of a video part that will present each rider in their own unique style. Each Real Series event’s videos will premiere on XGames.com where fans can watch and vote for their favorite.”
