Continuing to serve up monthly original content, World of X Games programming in August brings new two-wheel excitement with the premiere of Pastranaland Pit Bike Championship, August 15 on ESPN2 and Real BMX, August 22 on ABC. Quarantine looks a little different at X Games legend Travis Pastrana’s compound, where he pits racing’s greatest names against each other on tiny bikes for a trophy and bragging rights. The action continues with X Games’ video competition, debuting 90-second video parts from the world’s best BMX Riders. August World of X programming will also feature encore presentations of highlight content.
