X Games organizers will offer refunds to people who purchased upgraded viewing options for motocross competitions after the freestyle event was postponed then canceled because of wind.

Full refunds will be available to guests who bought upgrades for Saturday and Sunday, and partial refunds will be available for three-day motocross upgrades, officials said.

“Refunds are not available for guests who purchased three-day All Sport Competition wristbands, all other competition upgrades or general admission wristbands,” organizers said in a statement. “No refunds will be offered onsite at Circuit of the Americas. Circuit officials will be in touch with guests as soon as possible with refund information.”

The freestyle event, where riders perform tricks on a dirt course with multiple jumps, was originally scheduled for Saturday evening, but was postponed to Sunday because of wind. Organizers canceled the competition Sunday afternoon as well also because of wind.
