Boise Mayor Dave Bieter had an iconic moment last summer when he stood in the middle of the newly revamped Rhodes Skate Park and told hundreds of skateboarders what it would mean to have a world-class park in their hometown. At the time, he couldn't have known the new park would host a qualifying event for the 2017 X Games. Join some of the top skateboarders in the U.S. as they compete June 9-10 for a shot at the X Games in Minneapolis July 13-16. Roll down to Rhodes Friday for women's and men's elimination and BMX park elimination events. On Saturday, scope the women's, men's and BMX park finals. Admission is free, but special bleacher seating will be available for $20 (UPDATE: Bleacher seats have sold out for Saturday, but are available on a first-come, first served-basis Friday) and food trucks will be on hand. ABC will broadcast the action Saturday, June 17.
