After three successful years hosting the Road to X Games: Park Qualifier at Rhodes Skate Park, the City of Boise and ESPN have mutually agreed to take a break from hosting the qualifier in Boise. The event put the city and its recreational opportunities on a world stage and showcased top skateboarding and BMX talent from around the world in the City of Trees.
“It’s been an incredible experience and we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished not once, but three times hosting this major competition in Boise,” said Parks and Recreation Director Doug Holloway. “The city will continue to keep an open dialogue with ESPN about opportunities in the future.”
Boise hosted the world’s top skateboarders and BMX riders at Road to X Games qualifying events held in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Top finishers went on to compete at X Games Minneapolis.
“We are proud to have staged three world-class park competitions in Boise, which were successful for athletes, fans and sponsors,” added Ryan McGuinness, director of event development, X Games. “We want to thank the City of Boise and the team at Boise Parks and Recreation for their support over the past three years.”
The City of Boise truly appreciates the fans, sponsors and other partners who joined us in putting on the Road to X Games: Park Qualifier and we’re excited about the future of BMX and skateboarding in Boise!
