X Games Austin 2014

X Games Austin 2014 was an action sporting event that took place over June 5–8, 2014, at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Another Venue used for the event was the Austin 360 Amphitheater.

While the Summer X Games in past years was typically held in California, this was the first full X Games event to be held in the state of Texas; in 2003, a special "Global Championships" event was held in San Antonio, Texas. The games were originally announced to be held on May 15–18, but were slipped to the next month, the reason given by ESPN was for a more favorable broadcast window.[1]

X Games Austin gained a 4-day attendance of 160,000 and an all-time total of 5,069,115. It was also announced on the ESPN broadcast that next year's X Games will again be hosted in Austin, Texas and that a new event, Moto X Flat Track will make its debut.
