X Games original content rounds out the schedule, with the winter Being Series episode, featuring profiles of athletes to watch at X Games Aspen: Shaun White, Kelly Clark, Nick Goepper and Bobby Brown.
Now in its ninth year, the Real Series has expanded from only a Real Street competition into six different episodes. The series now includes Real Ski, Real Snow, Real Street, Real BMX, Real Moto and Real Wake . In each Real Series competition, each athlete teams with an editor to produce a never-before-seen video part in their own unique style. Each video part will debut on XGames.com for fans to watch and vote for their fan favorite. Then each competition will culminate in a one-hour World of X Games episode which will feature each part, behind-the-scenes content and selection of the medalists. For past editions click here.
