X Games announced today Scotty James will step into the business side of the competition to bridge the X Games legacy for the future and will continue to compete in X Games Aspen Men’s Superpipe competition in 2024 and beyond.
James will liaise with X Games on how to continue to strengthen the competition moving forward and serve as a brand steward to build the X Games business and external X Games partnerships. He joins previously announced brand steward and investor, 10x X Games winner, Tony Hawk.
“I’ve always felt that X Games provides the biggest stage in action sports which is why I made the decision to join the group of advisors in developing the business part of the exciting new chapter. I hope to continue to build the X Games legacy in the action sports arena and shape the future of the business. I’ve always loved competing in Aspen and hope that the athletes to follow will be able to experience and enjoy the competition as much as I do.”
