The 2012 Los Angeles X Games were sponsored this year by GoPro HD, and the new sponsor has brought viewers the X Games in first person. HD HERO2 professional cameras were mounted on athletes' helmets and vehicles to capture this amazing footage.

While most of us will never be able to do a back flip while speeding down a terrifyingly tall ramp, GoPro’s footage of the X Games in first person perspective gives us the next best thing. The only thing that is really missing is the feeling in your gut as you spin around in the air and the rush of the wind blowing past your face.

GoPro recorded many of the greatest extreme athletes of our day. See through the eyes of Bucky Lasek, Andy MacDonald, Mithchie Brusco, Drew Bezanson, Ken Block, Leticia Bufoni and Chad Kagy.  See these death-defying stunts from the comfort and safety of your own home.
