Talk about not ever giving up.

Sidelined by a traumatic brain injury for more than six months, pro skateboarder Adam Taylor has been OK’d by his doctor to compete in Skateboard Vert this week at X Games Los Angeles.

Taylor was injured in October of 2010 during vert practice at the Dew Tour’s season finale in Las Vegas and again while snowboarding last January.

X Games will be held June 28-July 1. Check out this viewing guide to watching on TV, the web and even Facebook. Here’s a complete competition schedule.
