X Games Austin 2014: 11 Skaters, BMXers and Motocross Riders You Should Watch This Weekend

This lot will all be worth tuning in for...

The X Games have always been fond of inviting ridiculously young skaters to compete – Nyjah Huston was 11 when he got his first invite, and Ryan Sheckler won a gold medal at the tender age of 13!

But these days you tend to see the youngest faces in mega-ramp and skateboard vert. Which is interesting because for years these events were the preserve of 90s stars like Bob Burnquist and Bucky Lasek, most of whom are now pushing 40.

The latest in a line of child prodigies that includes Tom Schaar and Mitchie Brusco is Jagger Eaton, who’ll be 13 (13 ffs!) when he competes in the Big Air.
