DETROIT (WKZO) -- The X-Games will not be coming to Detroit in 2014.

ESPN has announced that Austin, Texas will host the event beating out Detroit, Chicago, and Charlotte.  Supporters of getting the sporting event to Detroit had the backing of Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert.

Kevin Krease and Garrett Koehler spearheaded the attempt to draw the games and released a statement today saying their organization will "create our own X-Games."  Details for the local games will be released in the coming weeks.
