I mean, what can I say? I was kind of hoping that X Games would still happen, just without the public in attendance, like the UFC and WWE. But I understand that it’s a different ballgame with athletes coming from all over the world. So yeah. Vans BMX Pro Cup went yesterday and X Games went today. All we have left are Battle Of Hastings (and NORA Cup) and Swampfest, which are scheduled for September and October, respectively. Shit. Oh, here’s the short statement from ESPN:

“Due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns, X Games Minneapolis 2020 – July 17-19 – has been cancelled. The safety of the athletes, staff and spectators is our top priority, and we will continue to closely monitor the situation for all X Games events.”
