"We are encouraging X Games fans everywhere to join the online campaign through the X Games Austin official website, Facebook and Twitter pages and by using their own social media channels to get the word out. Every post, comment, ‘Like’, and tweet will help show ESPN that Austin means business and is the perfect city to host the summer version of the X Games for the next three years."
