X Games Aspen wrapped up in January and X Games Norway finished in May but fear not—there are still plenty of extreme activities on the 2018 sporting calendar.

After beginning yesterday in Minnesota, X Games Minneapolis should continue to deliver plenty of adrenaline-packed hijinks over the weekend during events like Moto X Freestyle, Skateboard Big Air, and Dave Mirra’s BMX Park Best Trick.

It should also give you a chance to check out some of the gnarliest athletes on the planet doing what they do best: risking life and limb.

Since you might not be too knowledgeable with the X Games and their participants—past and present—we’ve rounded up five extreme athletes you’ll want to familiarize yourself with right quick.

Three of these ladies competed in Aspen and two will be getting after it in Minneapolis … but you’re going to want to know all five. And follow ’em on the ‘Gram.
