A Good Reason to Bring the X Games to Detroit | Video

This week two Detroit locals stepped up to bid for their hometown to host the X Games. Aside from combing through panels of legality matters, Kevin Crease and Gareth Koehler also need to prove to the rest of the world that the Motor City is the perfect backdrop for three summers of exhilarating sports. Hence, they’ve released this trailer to stimulate our senses. Shot from a bird’s-eye view, the rugged, industrial landscape of Detroit is used as the primary focus, entertaining a number of sports that will be featured in the Games.
