ESPN Action Sports announced yesterday two new events for X Games 17, which will take place this July 28-31 in Los Angeles.

In the motorcycle division, Enduro X will be making its X Games debut in both the men's and women's disciplines. In a mix between motocross racing and traditional Enduro racing, competitors will race across an all-terrain course that includes sand, mud, logs, rocks and other terrain features.

Also new to X Games 17 is the addition of a Rally Car Racing street circuit running through the downtown Los Angeles.

"Having RallyCross at last year's X Games was a huge step for the sport," said three-time X Games rally gold medalist Tanner Foust, "but racing through city streets is how motorsport began."

Curious what else you can see at the X Games?  Here are the Top 10 things you missed last year, plus our rundown of the best moments at Winter X.
