Shanghai – The 2010 KIA X Games Asia, organised by ESPN STAR Sports’ Event Management and ESPN X Games with title sponsor Kia Motors, returns to Shanghai with a line-up of new disciplines, headlined with the new mini-MegaRamp structure that will be showcased for the first time in Asia during the four-day action sports extravaganza from 27 to 30 May 2010. Held in Shanghai for the fourth consecutive year, the 2010 KIA X Games Asia will debut the monumental structure towering more than three stories high, and longer than two basketball courts. The mini MegaRamp contests will feature Skateboard and BMX athletes dropping into a structure with a 9.2m high roll-in, launching over a gap 7.6m long and continuing into a 5.5m quarter-pipe. Most significantly, decorated international action sports athletes will entertain passionate local crowds by parading never-seen-before tricks on the mini-MegaRamp. Among the X Games medallists confirmed to compete at 12th annual event are eight-time gold medallist Andy Macdonald, six-time gold medallist Bucky Lasek, and five-time gold medallist Pierre-Luc Gagnon in the skateboard disciplines, as well as four-time gold medallist Kevin Robinson and eight-time medallist Simon Tabron for the BMX Freestyle events. The Yasutoko brothers Eito and Takeshi, a popular draw amongst Asian fans, return to extend their dominance in the aggressive in-line vert.
