Alright, I take back what I said about trashcan luge and moped biathlon. The X-Games are a strangely watchable sports spectacle, and a good platform for Codemasters to launch its official DiRT 3 trailer last night.

The trailer obviously showcases the changing environmental conditions you race under when the game releases next year. That last bit with the exploding tractor-trailer seems a bit overdone, but it seems to reference gymkhana, an extreme rally sport where course memorization is key and there's usually a major obstacle to navigate somehow.
