Official X Games Promo Vid: Detroit Most Extreme City of All

New, 16 comments


In its bid to host ESPN's X Games, Detroit is desperately trying to out-extreme Chicago, Austin, and Charlotte. With that in mind, our official bid has sprouted an official promo video, proving Detroit not only loves its extreme sports, but it can do them in extreme places. Like the Packard Plant, which is extremely lawless and extremely full of tires, or Belle Isle, which is extremely under-maintained. Even if you're not into all these kids riding their skate-blades with their long hair and baggy pants, winning the X Games would mean three years of tourism and publicity. We'll know ESPN's choice come August. Other than the basic landmarks, what locations do you see? Is that Belle Isle's Central Avenue that hatchback is zooming down?
