X-Games Adds MTB Slopestyle for 2013

Date Dec 10, 2012

Mountain Bike Slopestyle will make its first appearance at the X-Games in 2013, at the Munich, Germany event, according to a release from ESPN.

“We were always taking kind of a global look at things while selecting which sports would appear in which cities,” said Tim Reed, X Games senior director of content strategy. “[Slopestyle] was an event that the locals felt very strongly about and felt it was relevant,” Reed said. “The hill has a great elevation change, so we figured it out.”


What are your thoughts on X-Games slopestyle? Another venue for mountain bikes to get some exposure, or a slippery slope towards big air contests and the return of downhill snow racing?

sweet! Hopefully it won't take much away from the FMB because that tour is getting pretty sweet with crankworx + rampage being the crown jewels, but just a couple events (looks like just munich for next summer?) with all the big names on TV will be rad.
