One year at U.S. Bank Stadium for the X Games was enough to convince all parties involved to bring it back for another two years. 

X Games, Sports Minneapolis, and U.S. Bank Stadium announced Tuesday that they've reached a 2-year extension that will keep the X Games in Minneapolis through 2020. The first X Games contract was also a two-year deal, so this summer's events are part of the original agreement. 

"Minneapolis and U.S. Bank Stadium have quickly established themselves as a destination for the world's top sport and entertainment brands and we look forward to building off of a terrific first year in Minneapolis," said Tim Reed, X Games Vice President Tim Reed. 

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said Minneapolis showed the world "we know how to live on the edge" with Super Bowl week's zip line over the Mississippi River and Levi LaVallee's backflip on a snowmobile in downtown Minneapolis. 

This summer's X Games run July 19-22 featuring the world's best at skateboard, BMX, Moto X and Harley-Davidson Flat Track competition.  

Tickets are available at the X Games website. They're $20 for general admission and $50 for three-day passes.
