X Games XVIII (re-titled X Games Los Angeles 2012) was an action sporting event which took place from June 28 – July 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. Venues for the event included the Staples Center, Nokia Theater and the streets near L.A. Live.[1] The games featured the sports of Moto X, skateboarding, BMX, and rallying.[2] Last year's X Games 17 was the first ever X Games to feature Enduro X, which replaced Super X. In 2013, the Summer X Games will be held in four international cities in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil (April 18–21, 2013); Barcelona, Spain (May 9–12, 2013); Munich, Germany (June 27–30, 2013); and Los Angeles, California (August 1–4, 2013).[3]
