How Works


If you live and breathe all things motocross (or snowboarding, skateboarding or BMX), offers a venue to connect with other extreme-sport fanatics just like yourself. Visitors to the Web site can view all upcoming action-sports events right from the homepage, complete with maps, directions and descriptions. You can even post your own action-sports events to help get them publicized. The site also allows visitors to see photos from past action-sports events -- so even if you weren't there, you can still get a bite of the action [source:, Inc.].

But to reap the full benefits of what has to offer, users need to become a ZexSports member [source:, Inc]. functions a lot like a social networking site except that it's exclusively for extreme-sports fans. Fans can register on the Web site to create a profile, upload photos and videos, connect with other members, and publish a blog. Members can even connect their ZexSports profile to their Facebook, MySpace, Twitter or e-mail account to share photos, events and news with their friends [source:, Inc]. members can also sign up for Daily Action Sports News, a weekly e-newsletter put together by the staff [source:, Inc].
