First Wave of Invited Athletes

The first wave of athletes invited to participate in the 2005 Summer X Games.

ESPN X GAMES ANNOUNCES THE FIRST WAVE OF INVITED ATHLETES TO X GAMES 11

ESPNís X Games announces the first wave of athletes who have been invited to compete at X Games 11, to be held in Los Angeles August 4-7, 2005. The event will air live on ESPN, ABC and ESPN Deportes.

The X Games is the definitive annual action sports competition featuring more than 150 of the worldís best athletes competing in: BMX Freestyle, Moto X, Skateboard, Surfing and Wakeboard. X Games 11 will primarily have a finals-only format consisting of the 10 best action sports athletes per sport discipline.

All athletes receiving invitations to compete at X Games are chosen by a sport-specific selection committee. Criteria and timing of invitations varies by sport and discipline, as it is based on the state and event schedules of that particular sport. The only exception is each gold medalist from X Games 10 (2004) receives an automatic invitation to compete.

Information on each committee and its sportís invitation process can be found on each X Games sport organizer website (links listed below). The sport of Surfing is the only sport in which the athletes are selected by each teamís coach, not by a committee.

The second wave of invitations is scheduled to be announced in mid-June. The list of athletes is subject to change.
