Hey- it’s Jon Foss with the CW Twin Cities. The single most exciting sporting event in the country is going to be right here in the Twin Cities this summer. That’s right, the X-Games has it’s new home and it’s at US Bank Stadium.

I had the AMAZING opportunity to talk to Nicole Hause and Alec Majerus, two X Games skaters from right here in Minnesota.

The event kicked off with a press conference featuring some of the top athletes.

Rich Bigge, X Games Director of Sports & Competition, gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the flat track that is going up in the Mall of America parking lot.

And X Games is more than just sports. Ryan McGuinness, X Games Director of Event Development, told us about all of the events surrounding X Games Minneapolis.
