Minnesota will be the heart of the action sports world from the 13th – 16th July when over 200 of the worlds best athletes bike, skate and ride into town for X Games Minneapolis. LifeProof returns to the action as an official sponsor, bringing a seasoned crew of athletes to fight for 2017 glory.

LifeProof is once again the title sponsor of the Moto X Step Up finals, where Jarryd McNeil will defend his gold medal finish from X Games Austin.

The LifeProof athlete team brings a wealth of experience and accomplishments to X Games Minneapolis:

- Lizzie Armanto will be competing in Women’s Skateboard Park. She took home a silver medal last year in Women’s Skateboard Park and earned gold at X Games Barcelona in 2013.

- Jarryd McNeil will defend his crown in Moto X Best Whip and Moto X Step Up. He’ll also compete in Moto X QuarterPipe High Air as he looks to add to his seven X Games medals.

- Tom Schaar is set to compete in the Men’s Skateboard Big Air and Men’s Skateboard Park. Currently sitting with a total of 5 medals from X Games he’s hoping to add to his collection.

- Gary Young will be laying down in the BMX Park, after racking up 4 medals the competition will be hot on his heels. His top finish is a gold medal from X Games Barcelona 2013.

- If you’re making the journey over we will be onsite with a booth at X Fest, outside U.S. Bank Stadium, with athlete autograph sessions and photo opportunities available throughout the weekend.
