yea...its a bunch of bull that the x-games dropped them.
but obviously it was because they weren't getting enough money from having them on television...and its all about the money for the x-games.

but yea...i don't even do flat or ride downhill...but its a part of riding...as a whole...and if the x-games say they are about all these "extreme" sports i think they need to get real.

ESPN Drops Downhill BMX and Flatland from the X Games


03/18/2004



by Press Release
Downhill BMX and Flatland Competition Cancelled from 2004 X Games

Hello riders,

ESPN informed us late last week that Flatland and Downhill BMX will be dropped from the 2004 X Games. Over the past three years, the X Games have awarded $146,700 in prize money to Downhill BMX and quite a bit of exposure, along with giving you the opportunity to re-define BMX racing. Of course, we are very sorry to see DH BMX dropped from the event, but overall we feel very good about what we've collectively achieved over the past three years.

Now that we've shown how amazing DH BMX is and what the riders are capable of, we hope the NBL and UCI will continue to hold Downhill races. A huge thank you to all of the supporters, sponsors, riders' sponsors, and of course the riders themselves for helping make the dream come true.

It sickens us to see Flat dropped from the event. Flatland is a major staple in our sport and always will be one of the most amazing and evolving disciplines that has stemmed from Freestyle BMX. We will continue to work with ESPN in the hope to keep Flatland as involved and represented in one way or another.

If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call or write us an e-mail.

Phone: 405-528-2453 (528-bike)

Email: info@hsacentral.com

Please see the below statement from ESPN:

As the action sports landscape continues to evolve, the X Games has a responsibility to evolve with it. This is why each year we monitor and evaluate the most appropriate sports for inclusion in the upcoming X Games.

X Games has had seven successful years of Bike Stunt Flatland and three exciting years of Downhill BMX. We have enjoyed showcasing and working with the world-class athletes and we thank them for their dedication to their sport. Our evaluation of sports in the X Games includes a sports' progression, growth, and infrastructure, as well as a review of viewership, spectator, demographic, and psychographic as they pertain to that sport. Results of these factors have led us to the decision of not including Flatland and Downhill BMX in X Games this year. We continue to work with our valuable partner the Hoffman Sports Association (HSA) in their role as sport organizer for the Bike Stunt events at X Games: Vert, Park and Dirt.

The x-games provides major advertising for these sports, makin kids wanna get out and do them. Also major advertising for bike companies, this sucks! Im a dirt biker, as you can see, but im still interested in flat land and downhill. I even do some flatland tricks when i want to! but yeah this sucks!

THAT ****ING SUCKS :twisted: ! flat land and downhill are two important areas of the bike market, it is a shame that the x-games producers can't see the importance of having these sports on tv, to generate positive publicity for these rather "underground" sports. its a ****ing shame the world is run on money! :twisted:
