The X Games are an annual Olympic type series of extreme sports.  The Summer X Games includes events like motocross, BMX racing and skateboard events.  The City of Detroit has put in a bid to host an upcoming event and has produced an excellent video to promote their efforts.

The gritty Michigan city that has been so maligned has its proponents (your author included) who celebrate the city's past glory and see potential in its future.

Opening with sweeping panoramic views of the city, the video is reminiscent of Chrysler's "Imported from Detroit" series. The action switches to extreme sports athletes across the city.

Best of luck, Detroit in landing the X Games! #XG2D
