Two X Games events are going away.

The X Games announced that they will eliminate the “Best Trick” events for the snowmobile and Moto-X categories.  Recently Caleb Moore died as a result of injuries he sustained during a snowmobile best trick attempt.

Officials say Calebs death … the first in X Games 18 year history … is not the reason behind this move.  According to them, this event has been under scrutiny for some time now.  Officially, they made the following statement:

“ESPN today announced that it will discontinue staging Moto X Best Trick and Snowmobile Best Trick competitions at future X Games events.

“This change reflects our decision to focus on motor sports disciplines which feature athletes who also compete in multiple, world-class competitions (e.g., professional events and tours) reflecting the highest degree of athlete participation, competitive development, and the global nature of our X Games franchise.

“Over the past 18 years we have made more than 60 changes to our competition lineups at X Games events to capture the evolution of the sport and these continue that growth.”
