Snowboard and Ski X cancelled
Shame really but it was announced today that the 2013 Aspen Winter X Games won’t include Ski X and Snowboarder X.It will be the first time in the Games’ history that the course will not be included and also rules out Mono Skier Cross for the 2013 games.
Snowboarder X was one of just three events that have run consistently since the start of the games along with Snowboard Superpipe and Slopestyle.
Tim Reed, senior director of content strategy for ESPN X Games, said of the decision, “It just comes down to filling the schedule with how much we believe we need to make the event enjoyable to the fans and deliver on what we need from a product standpoint."
Meanwhile two former disciplines will be reinstated; Snowmobile Snowcross and Speed and Style. Really?
