The fourth year of X Games Norway competition will be unlike any other – combining Snowboard, Ski, Skateboard and Moto X events in a one-day action sports extravaganza on August 31 at the Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway. The X Games Norway program has previously included Ski, Snowboard and Skateboarding in the same event, however, Moto X competitions will make their debut in 2019. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.
X Games Norway will feature Men’s and Women’s Ski and Snowboard Big Air, Men’s and Women’s Skateboard Street and Moto X Best Trick, QuarterPipe High Air and Best Whip. With more than 10 hours of back-to-back competitions and music, fans will have the best seat in the house. In addition to all the action on the floor, fans will be a few meters from the run in of the Big Air jump as it extends 40-meters high – with riders dropping in from outside the building and travelling down the run in through the roof before hitting the kicker inside the stadium.
Also announced today, the first round of invited athletes to X Games Norway 2019 received their invites to compete. This includes teenage Snowboard phenoms Kokomo Murase and Takeru Otsuka; hometown ski heroes Øystein Bråten and Birk Ruud; and top skateboarders Nyjah Huston and Leticia Bufoni. The next round of athletes will be invited in June. The full list of athletes and competition schedule can be found on XGames.com.
“After three years of successful events in Norway, we’re excited to bring another unique X Games experience to fans by creating one action-packed day of world-class action sports competition and music,” said Tim Reed, vice president of X Games. “Bringing everything under one roof at Telenor Arena will create an impressive day where fans can enjoy 10 hours of the best winter and summer action from one seat.”
“Once a year, the best action sports athletes in the world come to Norway,” said two-time X Games gold medalist Birk Ruud of Baerum. “Except when I am competing, I am going to be watching all the action from a great seat.”
