X Games Austin 2015 is now wrapped. So what’s up next? 

First, the fact the winter X Games will likely have two locations this year. 

Not only will X Games Aspen be held January 28-31, but another is being organized in Olso, Norway for February of 2016.

As far as summer X goes, here are three big story lines to watch leading up to next summer:

  1. Vince Byron – Can he prevent Jamie Bestwick from winning gold again on the BMX vert?
  2. Will Bob Burnquist win another gold in his 21st year?
  3. How much more insane can Rally Cross get and will Scott Speed cross the checkered first again?

Of course there are a great series of extreme events coming up the rest of 2015 as well.
