While the US Government is shutdown, the X Games has brought on their own version of a shutdown.
ESPN and X Games made an announcement today that all international stops will not continue effective immediately.
What do you think about the move?
The written statement from ESPN and X Games is below:
ESPN today announced it will not continue with X Games events in Barcelona, Munich, Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil and Tignes, France. We are proud to have run world-class competitions for both the athletes and spectators; however the overall economics of these events do not provide a sustainable future path. The company remains fully committed to the X Games brand and its full-scale competitions in Aspen, Colorado and Austin, Texas – its newest host city – and we will continue to distribute these premier events around the world.
