Ready for Minneapolis, the Monster Energy team is stacked with a large number of athletes earning coveted invites. Visit monsterenergy.com for a full list of invitees—key athletes and events to watch out for include:
Jamie Bestwick, the unquestionable king of BMX Vert, will be ready to reclaim gold this year. He’s won every X Games Vert event since 2007 except 2015, which ended Bestwick’s streak of nine consecutive gold medals. He reclaimed gold in 2016 and is hoping this will be the start of a new winning streak.
Loaded with raw talent, five-time X Games gold medalist Kyle Baldock from Australia will be going for gold as a triple threat in BMX Park, Dave Mirra’s BMX Park Best Trick and BMX Dirt.
ESPN and ABC will televise a combined 18.5 hours of live X Games Minneapolis 2017 coverage, which will also be accessible via the ESPN App to viewers who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.
