Kevin Krease, 27, and Garret Koehler, 26, have worked the last several months to submit for Detroit's bid, and on Tuesday they made their pitch.
The bid is to host X Games from 2014-2016.
The duo needs to come up with around $7 million in corporate sponsorship commitments. ESPN would cover the remain costs of the event, around $15 million -$20 million.
Krease and Koehler released this video about their bid.
