With excitement in Tignes reaching fever pitch as the resort prepares for this week’s European X-Games, ESPN hit us up to let us know how those of us who can’t be there can watch the whole shebang. It appears the best bits of the competition – including the women’s slopestyle, in which Jenny Jones is one of the favourites – will be broadcast live on the sports channel, which is available to Sky, Virgin, Talk Talk and BT Vision customers in the UK.
Other big names will also be putting in appearances, including Peetu Piiroinen, who just secured his second TTR World Tour Title over the weekend at The Arctic Challenge in Norway, and Gretchen Bleiler, the former Olympic halfpipe silver medallist. Oh, and the lovely Torah Bright, the Aussie chick who knocked the Americans off the top spot at the Vancouver Games, will also be there.
