The X Games are an annual extreme sports event hosted, produced, and broadcast by ESPN. Coverage is also shown on ESPN’s sister network, ABC. The inaugural X Games were held during the summer of 1995 in Providence and Newport, Rhode Island, United States. Participants compete to win bronze, silver, and gold medals, as well as prize money. The 2016/2017 season is the first season the X Games have hosted the Real Games, allowing athletes to compete for seven major resorts on only inbounds real terrain (no man-made elements allowed) to determine which resort has the best terrain.
X Games Real Street is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year, pairing one skate with one videographer for an amazing, unique one-minute street edit.
Real Street 2021 is on. This is a two-part contest: judged and fan-decided. Winners of the judge-awarded X Games gold, silver and bronze medals will be announced during X Games 2021. This here is the Fan Favorite Thunderdome, where fans watch the videos below and vote for their picks to win. The fan favorite contest ends on Monday, July 19. X Games Real Street 2021 videos dropped on July 5. Invited athletes include Jake Anderson, Matt Berger, Chris Colbourn, Axel Cruysberghs, Ducky Kovacs, Frankie Spears, Milton Martinez and Alexis Ramirez.
A couple parts really stood out, one from young pro Ducky Kovacs, filmed and edited by Mikey Guzman. Ducky charges hard and goes for broke at all times. Huge rails and insane trick selection, who front boards double set rails?? The other part might be the obvious choice, Milton Martinez. Death defying drops, intense speeds, murderous rails and a clear mastery of all terrains, Milton absolutely crushes in only 60 seconds.
You can check all the video entries out on the X Games site and vote for your favorite! Voting ends July 19th!!!
