Held in Shanghai for the fourth consecutive year, the 2010 KIA X Games Asia will debut the monumental structure towering more than three stories high, and longer than two basketball courts. The mini MegaRamp™ contests will feature Skateboard and BMX athletes dropping into a structure with a 9.2m high roll-in, launching over a gap 7.6m long and continuing into a 5.5m quarter-pipe. Most significantly, decorated international action sports athletes will entertain passionate local crowds by parading never-seen-before tricks on the mini-MegaRamp™.

Among the X Games medallists confirmed to compete at 12th annual event are eight-time gold medallist Andy Macdonald, six-time gold medallist Bucky Lasek, and five-time gold medallist Pierre-Luc Gagnon in the skateboard disciplines, as well as four-time gold medallist Kevin Robinson and eight-time medallist Simon Tabron for the BMX Freestyle events. The Yasutoko brothers Eito and Takeshi, a popular draw amongst Asian fans, return to extend their dominance in the aggressive in-line vert.

The bolstered event, following the renewal of a three-year title sponsorship by Kia Motors till 2012, also welcomes the addition of new brands such as Clear as a Premium Sponsor, as well as Official Suppliers in Challenge Skateboard, ELECOM, and Pizza Boy picking up sponsorship packages – bringing the total number of sponsors and partners to 49 this year. All the brands stand to benefit from various promotional and marketing opportunities as part of their association with the KIA X Games Asia.

“Coinciding with the renewal of our title sponsorship with Kia Motors, the KIA X Games Asia promises to be the biggest and most exciting edition we have seen to date. With the new mini-MegaRamp™ competition, a new double-sized vert ramp and a spectacular list of world-class athletes in all competitions competing for an increased prize purse, we are taking this iconic sports event to new heights together with our sponsors. We look forward to showcasing another exhilarating event to action sport fans in Shanghai” said Harvey Davis, ESPN STAR Sports Vice President, Event Management.

The KIA X Games Asia will feature another impressive line-up of nearly 200 of the best athletes from more than 30 countries competing in the region’s No.1 action sports competition. This year, competitors can look forward to an increase in prize money, which has been raised from US$130,000 last year to US$150,000. In addition to the mini-MegaRamp™, this year’s event will feature the sport disciplines of Aggressive Inline (Vert and Street), Skateboard (Vert and Street), BMX Freestyle (Vert and Street) and Moto X Freestyle demonstrations (Big Air).

The KIA X Games Asia has earned a strong global reputation with a significant increase in awareness about action sports in the region and the 12th edition of Asia’s biggest action sports competition is expected to draw another capacity crowd this May. Since 2007, the annual event has attracted more than 141,200 visitors in Shanghai, and recorded its third consecutive record-breaking attendance last year with 54,500 spectators at Yangpu District’s KIC Jiangwan Sports Center.

In addition, competitors can look forward to a new ‘jam session’ format to KIA X Games Asia in the Vert and Street disciplines of Skateboard, BMX Freestyle and Aggressive In-Line Skate that will raise competitive levels and heighten the audience’s appreciation of the competition. In this new format, athletes will make multiple attempts per feature to score points during the elimination rounds and the Final, instead of having consecutive runs.

Visitors to this year’s KIA X Games Asia can also look forward to a festival atmosphere with many exciting entertainment and music performances, as well as an interactive activity arena with games and prize giveaways. In addition to the high-level competition, many young and trendy artists, musicians and dancers will give spectacular performances – including the event ambassador Eassy Xiao-Kun Wong with the original theme song “Round and Round”. The highly entertaining concerts will also feature performances by the Band Crystal Butterfly and Black New New, Andrew Zhi-Lin Cheung, and Miki Dan Tang.
