The Summer X-Games is annual competition put on by ESPN of the best action sports athletes competing in a bunch of different events, sort of a mini Olympics for action and extreme sports.
For the last 8 years the Summer X-Games has been held here in Los Angeles, which is great for me, because I enjoy going to see some of the events live. The last two years I wasn’t able to go to any events because I was traveling, but I was in town this year, so was able to attend several of the events.
A new event for this year’s Summer X-Games and the last event of the games was Endurocross. Endurocross is a mash-up of supercross and enduro. Rides race each other around a custom track build inside an arena. The track is a bit similar to a supercross track, but with added rocks, logs, waterholes and other obstacles that might been seen in an enduro race.
