DragonFire is at the X Games!
LOS ANGELES, California, July 29, 2010
- The X Games begin today, and this year, DragonFire will be a part of the action. With the games only a few weeks away, DragonFire was approached by ESPN and CA Ramp Works to help design a custom X Games Mega Ramp Shuttle, along with a transportation ramp to transport athletes to one of the games most popular events: Skateboard and BMX Big Air.
This year, the Big Air moved from the Staples Center, where elevators transferred athletes to the top of the 80 foot mega ramp, to the LA Coliseum, where there was no way to get the athletes back up.
DragonFire Racing helped design a 26 degree slope angle shuttle ramp, rising from the stadium floor to the top of the ramp as well as custom built vehicles to shuttle up to two athletes at a time up the ramp.
The vehicles will transport skateboarding stars like Danny Way, Jake Brown, Andy Mack, Bucky Lasek, Bob Burnquist, and Pierre-Luc Gagnon and BMX riders like Anthony Napolitan, Kevin Robinson, Andy Buckworth and Morgan Wade, as they push the limits of the 80 Foot Mega Ramp.
Get the full story on DragonFire Racing's blog. DragonFire's Todd Romano will be on the ground floor during the event, offering a first hand, behind-the-scene's view of the event.
The Big Air events can also be seen on ESPN through Sunday.
