New X Games Event is Sisyphean Ordeal of Dirt Bike Stupidity


Above are the highlights for the X Games’ (short for “Extreme Games,” in case you were an old person in 1993) newest event: Enduro X. As you can see, the ladies competing had some trouble with the course, located in Los Angeles’ Staples Center. ESPN, who runs the Games, says the new event has “has sailed the slow ship to success.” It looks as if that ship hit an iceberg, capsized and the crew contracted scurvy along the way. It wasn’t just the women who struggled with the course; take a look at the men going toe-to-toe in what promises to be the first and last annual Enduro X. [LA Times]
