"Tignes is certainly one of the most progressive resorts in Europe and its one of the most anticipated resorts in terms of events (Airwaves, FWT...) and this news is big. The X Games is coming to Europe and doing it in France (for the 1rst time its not in Switzerland or Austrian). The first European X Games will be held in Tignes in March (between the 8th and 15th of March)
Its has already been a long time that ESPN has been looking to create a little sister to the American Queen, in order to grow their market share into the Old Continent.
So its done, the organiser Chris Schuster, told us that it's 90% ready to role. So its not anymore a secret and we will talk more about it pretty soon but be sure that downdays will be an essential part of the expansion of X Games into Europe.
For info, this news means the end of the Tignes Airwaves after many years of good and loyal services."
Sounds good; just wish there was a more interesting resort to use than Tignes.
