Every event has athletes whose presence alone makes it worth your while to tune in, but let's take a look at two athletes you should set aside time for in particular.


Tom Remillard

Remillard is a major threat to win any Skateboard Park event. He's only 21 years old, but he has an extensive bag of tricks.

He uses his inexperience in his favor. He has fun with what he does and he isn't afraid to take a risk on a big trick.

Remillard uses a powerful style to land his repertoire and he attacks the obstacles with a quiet force. His style is unorthodox at times, but he definitely gets the job done.

Fans of exciting, versatile runs should tune in Saturday to watch Remillard steal the show.


Bucky Lasek

I bet you thought I was going to profile another skateboarder. Normally, you would be right but not this year.

Lasek is going to be the first skateboarder to compete in the X Games' RallyCross event. Athletes from other extreme sports have crossed over (Dave Mirra and Travis Pastrana), but these are unknown waters for people of Lasek's profession.

Fans of the X Games already know Lasek's name. He's been around the skateboarding world for what seems like forever.

The six-time X Games gold medalist will do his best to blaze inroads into another extreme sports genre. Watching him do so will be one of this year's most entertaining storylines.

Be sure to tune in next Thursday to ESPN's family of networks for live coverage of the 2012 X Games.
