ESPN Asian Xtour arrives in Kuala Lumpur next month

MUMBAI: The ESPN organised 2002 Asian Xtour arrives in Kuala Lumpur in the first week of September, the third stop of the event six-city tour.

The event will take place at a professionally designed course in the KLCC Car Park from 6-8 September. An official release informs that the two-day event has been extended to spread over three days due to increasing popularity, both among participants and spectators.

Winners in the three categories of Aggressive Inline Skating, Skateboarding and Bicycle Stunt will represent Malaysia at the Asian X Games Qualifier V and ESPN Junior X Games IV, both scheduled to be held in Kuala Lumpur in January. Qualified winners at the regional event will then go on to compete in ESPN's Summer X Games IX in the US, the pinnacle of action sports competition. Two roadshows with presenting sponsor Toyota, photo shoots with Adidas, and workshops for the media, exhilarating demos by professional athletes, ESPN giveaways and other activities are in store.

The release states that the Ministry of Youth and Sports has been managing the local Malaysian National Extreme Circuit over the past few months. The Circuit, which was created due in part to the overwhelming response from Malaysias action athletes at the Asian X Games, has been geared towards recruiting and training local action athletes at the grassroots level. This is in line with the Malaysian Governments on-going efforts in the area of sports development for the youth.

ESPN will broadcast the event on 29 September at 10 am. The 2002 Asian Xtour Kuala Lumpur is sanctioned by Aggressive Skaters Association, World Cup Skateboarding and Hoffman Sports Association.
