Skateboarding Events

Skateboarding remains one of the cornerstone sports of the X Games, and Ventura 2024 will feature a variety of disciplines:

  • Vert: This discipline involves athletes performing aerial tricks on a half-pipe ramp. The most famous moment in action sports history occurred on a vert ramp when Tony Hawk landed the first 900 at X Games 1999. The format at Ventura will be a jam session, where athletes have multiple 30-second runs, with their best run counting as their final score.
  • Park: Combining elements of classic skateboarding with features designed to send skaters flying, the Park discipline involves navigating a course reminiscent of an inground pool. Athletes will perform tricks using the course's features, and their score will be based on their best single run out of three.
  • Street: This discipline is the most popular and mimics real-world skateboarding in urban settings. The course includes obstacles like handrails, stairs, and benches. Skaters are judged on their best 45-second run out of several attempts.

Ventura 2024 will see the debut of Women's Skateboard Vert Best Trick, adding more excitement to the lineup.

BMX Events

BMX events at the X Games are known for their high-flying stunts and technical precision. The disciplines include:

  • Dirt: Riders navigate a course with multiple jumps, performing tricks over gaps ranging from 14 to 30 feet. Each rider gets three runs, with their best score counting.
  • Park: Similar to the skateboarding park discipline, BMX Park features a course designed to showcase flow, creativity, and aerial tricks. Riders get three 45-second runs, and their best run counts towards their final score.
  • Street: This discipline uses urban-style obstacles, and riders perform grinds, tailwhips, and other tricks. Garrett Reynolds, a dominant figure in BMX Street, has set the standard with his 15 X Games gold medals.

Ventura 2024 will also introduce Women's BMX Park, featuring top athletes like Hannah Roberts and international competitors.

Moto X Events

Moto X events bring the adrenaline-pumping excitement of motocross to the X Games. The disciplines include:

  • Best Trick: Riders perform their most difficult tricks, with judges scoring based on complexity and execution.
  • QuarterPipe High Air: Athletes attempt to achieve the highest air off a quarter-pipe ramp.
  • Best Whip: This event focuses on the stylistic execution of the whip, where riders throw their bike sideways in mid-air.

These events are a staple of the X Games, showcasing the daring and skill of the athletes involved.

Location and Tickets

X Games Ventura 2024 will take place at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, located at 10 E. Harbor Boulevard.
