Update: Check out our photos from the first ever Austin X Games in the slideshow above. And see more on the KUTX Flickr page.
Original Story (June 6): The X Games are underway for the first time in Austin.
Most of the extreme sports events are happening at the Circuit of the Americas track.
Morgan Wade has competed in the X Games before. But this year will be different… because he’s practically a hometown boy.
“It’s always nice to have a hometown crowd cheering you on," Wade says. "It’s different than all the other places we’ve been, obviously, because Texas is bigger and better than everywhere else we’ve already been.”
