Summer X Games Skate and BMX Street Course

The 2012 street course was designed to look and feel like an actual school yard. The idea was to make the athletes and spectators feel like they were kids all over again. Almost everyone can relate to a time when they looked into their own school yard and day-dreamed about hitting hand rails, stairs or any other ridiculously fun feature.
