X Games Returns to California
X Games, the content provider of sports adventure games and organizers of the iconic event, announced the return of the Games to the California South Coast with a series of events from San Diego to Ventura in July this year. Ten-time Gold Winner Tony Hawk at X Games said: "I'm looking forward to seeing X Games come back to the game's big players and fans, celebrating skateboarding like never before, and hopefully being able to create some new moves by the time of competition this year."
This summer will be the first time in three years that XGMs fans have come together to enjoy skateboarding, cycling and motorcycle competitions in a grand event of this magnitude, integrated with a fan festival and musical performances, and Ventura will serve as the final arena and the final stop in the rounds that qualify the world's best adventure stars to compete at the Ventura County Fairgrounds and Events Centre from 21 to 23 July 2023.
Ventura Mayor Joe Schroeder said: "Our city has a long history of supporting big events and we are honoured to have X Games choose it to host this prestigious international competition in July. "We look forward to welcoming thousands of athletes and fans to our community, and showing the world all the unique things Ventura has to do in an unforgettable experience."
Steve Fleisler, CEO of X Games, said: "We are delighted to be back in the home of adventure sports this summer. We are reimagining and organizing events along the California coast to provide an unforgettable experience for event fans, whether they watch the event in person or live." "Ventura rolls out the red carpet for its visitors, providing the perfect backdrop to the ocean and mountains to showcase skills that have never been done before, elevate adventure sports, and celebrate the greatest athletes on the planet in their professional fields."
