Big Air at the Coliseum

X Games 16 came to Los Angeles three weeks ago, and they decided to mix it up with the venues this year.  The Big Air super ramp has previously been set up in the parking lot north of the Staples Center (where it was quite the site to see from the 110 freeway).  L.A. Live is there now, so they put Big Air in at the Coliseum.

Jordan Moore at the USC RipsIt Blog went over during setup and took pictures:

The scale of that ramp is mind-boggling.

Chances are slim that the event will return to the Coliseum next year, as event coordinators have complained about the venue being too big.  Even if 50,000 people show up you’re still only half full.

UPDATE:  There’s plenty of video on YouTube.  Here’s Jake Brown:
