ESPN and Boise Agree to Road to X Games Event in 2019
Rhodes Skate Park Will Again Play Host
Heading into the second year as a host city for the Road to X Qualifier event, ESPN and the City of Boise have reached an extension agreement to host the Road to X Games: Boise Qualifier through 2019.
“The fan response from the city of Boise was overwhelming in 2017,” said Ryan McGuinness, director of event development, X Games. “The event and team at Boise Parks and Recreation provided an incredible fan experience, and we look forward to building on that this year and in 2019.”
“The X Games’ return is an exciting endorsement of what Boise has to offer,” said Boise Mayor David Bieter. “The dynamic nature of our city, especially our active outdoor culture, is a fantastic match for this event. We look forward to our city again being in the spotlight and creating an even better atmosphere for these exciting X Games athletes and the spectators.”
Welcoming over 10,000 fans in its inaugural year, the Road to X Games: Boise Qualifier expanded the event in 2018 to include Harley-Davidson Hooligan Racing at CenturyLink Arena, in addition to the three Park events at Rhodes Skate Park. More than 125 athletes are invited to qualify for their spot to X Games Minneapolis.
