One of the longest-running Winter X Games events — Snowmobile SnoCross racing — will no longer be a part of the Winter X program, as of this coming January’s event in Aspen, Colo., X Games officials announced Thursday. SnoCross debuted in 1998 as the first motorized sport in X Games history, and had been contested every year since then. Speed & Style, which combines snowmobiling’s freestyle and racing disciplines, and adaptive SnoCross, are also being eliminated.

Tucker Hibbert In ESPN The Magazine

It’s not every day a snowmobile racer hits a mainstream pub. Tucker Hibbert is part of a Winter X Games feature that talks about the technical aspects of the competition. There is a lot of cool stuff on his mod, but ESPN calls out a data acquision device the team uses, which sounds really cool.

Thanks to Fox Racing Shox for uploading the goods.

Moore Brothers Prep For Winter X

Five sleds for two riders? Truth is, two of these (or more) will probably get balled up in practice and there won't be time to fix them.

Remember the Moore brothers, Caleb and Colten? They came out of nowhere and went huge at Winter X in Freestyle last year. They’re headed back to Aspen this year but first they’ll be hanging out testing and dialing in their routines at Bikeman Performance in East Farmington, Wisconsin. Yep, that’s about a 15 minute trail ride from the sledRacer.com offices so we’re going to follow the brothers as they get ready for their run at Winter X 15.
