X Games 16 Commences: Oakley Athletes Poised to Battle for Gold


It’s finally here.

The world’s premier spectacle of Action Sports glory – ESPN’s X Games 16 – is invading Los Angeles this week (July 29 to Aug. 1). Like every year, some of the world’s best extreme sports athletes are ready to push the limits of their respective sports.

Well known to most, wherever the word “extreme” is, Oakley’s definitely there.

From Ryan Sheckler to Bob Burnquist (skate), Ronnie Renner to Shaun White (who’s ready for a resounding return to the Skate Vert competition) and more Oakley athletes poised to make their mark this year, this year’s Summer X Games is looking to be one awesome ride.

Freestyle Motocross. Super X. Skate. BMX. You name it…Oakley’s riders will likely be there to make their mark.

Be sure to follow Oakley on Facebook (www.facebook.com/oakley) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/oakley ) for real time, behind-the-scenes updates straight from X Games 16. Not to mention, updates on top athlete autograph signing sessions to take place onsite at the Rollin’ O Lab – will also be announced via Facebook and Twitter.
