X-Games Qualifiers

Jun 162018

The world’s top action sports athletes have been invited to the Road to X: Boise Qualifier. Hoping to earn their spots into Summer X Games, athletes will compete June 15-16 at Rhodes Skate Park in Boise, ID first – before advancing on to Minneapolis, Minnesota in July.

20 athletes will compete in each of the three Park disciplines, with the top six Men’s Skateboard and BMX athletes and the top four Women’s Skateboard athletes advancing into the X Games Minneapolis Park competition.

Athletes to watch include:
    •    Lizzie Armanto (Santa Monica, California) – The first female skater to be featured on the cover of Transworld Skateboarding and the first female in 24 years to land a Thrasher cover, Armanto turned pro with Tony Hawk’s Birdhouse team in 2017. Armanto is a two-time X-Games Skateboard Park medalist with Gold and Silver in three appearances. 
    •    Colton Walker (New Richmond, Wisconsin) – Walker entered his fist ever X Games last year and came home with an impressive fourth place finish in Park and a Gold in BMX Dirt. The former Monster Army rider earned his way on to the Monster Energy pro team with these impressive finishes. After just narrowly missing the podium in Park last year, you can be sure that he will be back this year with a vengeance! 
    •    Trey Wood (Queen Creek, AZ) –Trey Wood may be young in years, but not in experience. Having made his first X Games debut back in 2012, the young gun is no stranger to the spot light. Not only will you be seeing Trey in the Park qualifier in Boise, but you should expect to see him also skating in Big Air!
