It’s that time of year again! X Games 13 is almost here, and team riders Elissa Steamer, Lauren Perkins and Evelien Bouilliart will all be there to defend their titles. The team has killed it in past years in Women’s Skateboard Street, taking 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 the team pulls off a clean sweep! Elissa will be attempting to win her fourth gold medal in a row, Lauren will be defending her silver medal finishes at last year’s event and in 2004, and Evelien, who brought home silver in 2005, will be attempting to get back on the podium. 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 Skateboard Street Women’s Final will take place Friday, Aug. 3, from 11 a.m. to 12 noon. We hope to see you there!
