X Games Austin 2016: Time, TV schedule and live stream for Day 3
By James Brady
Day 3 of the 2016 X Games in Austin is here, and there will be plenty to watch with the conclusion of the BMX Big Air and the Moto X Best Trick competitions.
The four-day X Games Austin event is halfway done, but the most action-packed day yet awaits on Saturday. There was plenty to watch on the first two days, but a total of nine events will be available to watch on Saturday, beginning at 12 p.m. ET and running through 11 p.m.
You’ll see BMX bikes, skateboards and motocross action, including the hyped men’s street skateboarding final, the BMX big air finals and the best trick competition for motocross.
It will be hard to top the action from Friday, though. Day 2 saw the exciting conclusion of the second Street AMs competition, with Tyson Bowerbank taking the win there. In the skateboarding vert finals, Sam Beckett came out on top, besting guys like Bucky Lasek, Bob Burnquist and Moto Shibata to take the gold.
He didn’t dominate though, unlike Jamie Bestwick, who was ridiculous in the BMX Vert, taking home his 14th career gold medal and out-scoring the guys immediately behind him by a full four-plus points.
Below, we’ve got all the times and where to watch what you want on Saturday. There is one additional event that wasn’t originally scheduled for the day — the finale of the Skateboard Big Air was rained out Friday and will be made up toward the end of Saturday’s docket.
