The biggest summer action sports event of the year runs from August 2-5, 2007. X Games 13 gets underway in Los Angeles, California - the birthplace of skateboarding, BMX and many of your other favorite extreme sports. Kidzworld takes a look at the events and athletes of the X Games.

X Games 13 - Events

The Summer X Games features six different sports - skateboarding, motocross, surfing, wakeboarding, agressive inline skating and BMX. One event to keep an eye on is the Big Air event, which is part of the skateboarding competition. Skaters will speed down an 80-foot launch ramp, hit a big gap while attempting sick tricks and land in a quarterpipe. Another cool event at the X Games is Super Moto - a wild combination of supercross, freestyle and motorcycle street racing. The competition will take place on a crazy course featuring dirt hits, corners and asphalt straight-aways. All motocross riders will start at the same time, with the winner being the first to complete 20 laps of the track.

X Games 13 - Who to Watch

There will be plenty of the usual suspects down in L.A. for this year's games. Favorites you'll see are skateboarders Shaun White, Pierre-Luc Gagnon, Cara-Beth Burnside and Ryan Sheckler. In the motocross events, you'll be seeing high-flying masters like Chad Reed and Jeremy McGrath. The ever-versatile Travis Pastrana will compete in both Motocross and rally car racing events. Some of the lesser-known faces to keep an eye on are surfer Stephanie Gilmore, BMX biker Daniel Dhers and rally car driver Ken Block.
