As the annual summer action sports rite of passage comes closer—Summer X Games—the Dragon FMX riders prepare to compete. Held for the first time in Minneapolis, MN—at the brand new US Bank Stadium—let’s break down who and what and how to watch.
The ageless Nate Adams will be making his return to Summer X after a brief hiatus. He’ll be competing in the Best Whip competition for the first time. Joining him will be X Games rookie Destin Cantrell, who won his spot into the Best Whip contest via the Monster Energy Cup last fall.
Australian Josh Sheehan will be pulling double duty, competing in the Freestyle and Best Trick. Sheehan is fresh off a pair of 2nd place finishes at the Red Bull X-Fighters in Madrid, Spain and the Nitro Circus World Games in Salt Lake City, UT.
For the Dragon FMX riders the action begins Friday July 14th. The MotoX Freestyle starts at 9:00 PM EST on ESPN. And then on Saturday the 15th, Best Whip and Best Trick start in the 7:00 PM EST block on ESPN. And all events are streaming on ESPN3.com for those who have access to that.
