X Games Real Street returns

X Games Real Street returns for its second year with a selection of sixteen of the world’s best street skateboarders this summer. Each of them will submit 60-second video parts for a shot at $50,000 and an X Games gold medal. Competing out in the streets this year are: Daewon Song, Tommy Sandoval, Dylan Rieder, Darrell Stanton, Joey Brezinski, Tom Asta, Anthony Schultz, Zered Bassett, Eli Reed, Brandon Westgate, Ryan Decenzo, Louie Barletta, Billy Marks, Silas Baxter-Neal, Tony Tave and Guru Khalsa.
After these videos air on ABC on Saturday, July 30th, a panel of judges and respected pros will pick the winning part. The top four judges’ picks will also be invited to Los Angeles to compete for another X Games medal and $5,000 in a Game of SK8 to air live on ESPN2 on Sunday, July 31st.

But before all of this goes down, all 16 videos will debut online at on June 28th, and you will be able to vote in a tournament-style bracket for your favorite part each week leading up to X Games 17. The skater who racks up the most fan votes wins $10,000 and will be announced on July 31st.
