Another year another X Games? Not quite, for 2017, X Games found a new home in Minneapolis at the US Bank Stadium. Not only was it refreshing to be in a new venue, but the place is absolutely massive. Half the ceiling is made of glass and the slightly diffused light streaming in through the spider web looking ceiling definitely lent for some cool photos. The Park, Street, and Dirt courses, as well as the Mega Ramp, all fit nicely nestled together inside the behemoth building, while the Vert ramp was situated outside with the Minneapolis skyline behind it. It’s been a while since photos has been my focus at contest, so it felt really good to capture the moments in single frames again. Here’s a mash-up of photos I shot from the first few days of X Games 2017, including various practice sessions, Vert Finals, Dirt Qualifying, Big Air, and Street and Park finals.
