Elissa Steamer, Lauren Perkins and Evelien Bouilliart are gearing up to return to the X Games this summer to defend their titles! The team has killed it in past years in the Women’s Street Skate event, which will take place for the third time this year at X Games 12. In fact, etnies Girl riders have taken gold and silver each year the X Games has held the event, and we don’t expect this year to be any different—that is, unless this year is a clean sweep! Elissa will be attempting to win her third gold medal in a row, Evelien will be defending her silver medal finish at last year’s event, and Lauren, who brought home silver in 2004, will be attempting to get back on the podium this year. Unfortunately, the event won’t be televised, but if you’re in Southern California, we want to encourage you to come down to the Home Depot Center and show your support for the team. The contest will take place on Saturday, Aug. 5, at 3:30 p.m. We hope to see you there! If you can’t make it, make sure to check the site for updates and photos.
