I would still like to see actual wakeboarding, not just cableboarding the same rail or stair set up over and over.At least its getting some coverage.

I thought it was lame that they attached a wench to a MC on a trailer for the rail jam.

You know what is lame? At 3:00pm today I saw rally racing on the X Games! What is that about?

X-Games has rally racing because Travis Pastrana was racing (BTW he won the gold). They like crossover athletes (Shaun Palmer remember him).

For the most part the X-Games likes sports that can fit in an arean or a small area for many spectators to watch. That is why Mountain Biking went bye, bye. Great sport, bad spector sport. Wakeboarding same fate. Great sport, hard to watch from and area with many other things going on. I think they are on the right track to keep wakeboarding part of the X-games.

"new this year, Rally Car Racing" And Rally racing won't suffer the same fate of Wakeboarding & Mountain Bike Racing?

Just odd.

They should add Drifting to the venue. Drifting needs more exposure.

Ralley car racing is lame and is not an extreme sport. End of story.
