Thrills and spills at the X Games
CARSON, Calif. (KABC) -- The 15th annual X Games are going on at the Staples Center and Home Depot Center this weekend.
On Saturday, Moto X took center stage. But it was the extreme sports stars who were on hand to greet fans, the sun and, of course, all the action that really got fans riled up.

The defending Moto X gold medalist, Jeremy Lusk, passed away five months ago in Costa Rica when he landed head-first during a bad jump.
When asked about when an extreme athlete decides if he or she is pushing the limit, seven-time X Game medalist Nate Adams said, "It's a really fine line and the guys that can ride that fine line are the guys that can stay on top for a long time. And you kind of have to push yourself to where your limit is and kind of hold it there. But, you know, just not be stupid and not do something that you don't think you can land 100 percent. So, it's a tough thing and it's probably the most important thing to having a long career, or a successful career ... is just knowing when to say when. Get second today ... when you want to win, that's a tough thing to do and walk away, but it's a smart thing to do."
