The countdown is live! Monster Energy’s team of world-class athletes is ready to compete at X Games Minneapolis 2018 in less than a week from today. The world’s premier action sports event – supported by Monster Energy as the official drink sponsor for the fifth consecutive year – will stoke spectators and international audiences from July 19-22 at U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
Now in its second consecutive year in the Twin Cities, X Games Minneapolis will see more than 200 elite athletes from across the globe competing in Skate, BMX, Moto X and Flat Track racing disciplines.
Adding to a rocking weekend, X Fest will host a variety of entertainment, music and activities in the Medtronic Plaza at U.S. Bank Stadium, supplemented by installations from local artists and a skateboard history exhibit by the Skateboarding Hall of Fame. Also at X Fest, Monster Energy will feature athlete autograph signings, brand ambassadors, sampling and an outdoor lounge. Fans also have a chance to meet Monster Energy personalities and FB Live commentators like Luke ‘The Dingo’ Trembath and Blake ‘Bilko’ Williams.
In order to keep the level of riding elite, X Games Minneapolis 2018 is once again an invite-only event reserved for multiple-time X Games medalists and upcoming pros.
