I remember when ESPN created the X-Games as alternative sports programing and I wondered how could this ever work. Shows you what I know!

The X-Games featuring extreme sports has become widely popular and this week the games come to Boise's Rhodes Skate Park for a major two day skateboard and cycling competition. It all begins Friday with qualifying at 2 p.m. but there's already activity at the park and road closures in the area as of 6 a.m. Wednesday.
