Sir Terry Pratchett, British fantasy author and satirist best known for his forty-volume series of Discworld novels, which included The Colour of Magic, Hogfather, and Snuff, passed away today after an eight-year battle with Alzheimer's disease.
The Men's Skateboard Street finals closed out sport competition at X Games Austin 2014, but in the practice session beforehand the final six riders (and the crowd) were surprised by a special guest on the field of play: Tony Hawk.
The best female skaters in the world come together in the Women's Skateboard Street competition, held on the final day of X Games Austin 2014. The women have two runs each in the first and final rounds to impress the judges by pulling tricks off the course's stair sets, manual pads, banks, and ledges. Best score wins.
Twelve riders took to the swoops and slopes of the all-concrete Skateboard Park course on Sunday in a best-run-takes-all battle. In BMX Park, riders are judged on the aggressive execution of maneuvers, difficulty, variety, continuity, originality, style, and amplitude (height of airs), and no one disappointed.

Nowhere is that more true than at the X Games, where we caught this pair of extreme sign spinners practicing their art.
