ESC increase coverage of world's top extreme sport event

Following last year's encouraging viewer response, the Extreme Sports Channel have announced a second deal for rights to show programming from US sport and lifestyle festival, the Gravity Games.
The deal, made with sport content provider Octagon CSI, enables the Extreme Sports Channel to show ten hours of coverage from the Cleveland based sports, music and lifestyle event, which includes the biggest names in extreme sports.
Top pros competing for the highly valued Gravity Gold medals included big draw names such as BMX legends Dave Mirra and the UK's golden boy Jamie Bestwick, motorcross freestyler Travis Pastrana and spectacular vertical skaters Bob Burnquist and Bucky Lasek.
Extensive sports coverage from the Gravity Games are to be shown as part of the channel's Endless Extreme Summer strand running from May to August, also home to the world's most exciting and high profile extreme sports events.
