X Games cancels snowmobile freestyle demo in France

Published:
The Winter X Games will cancel a snowmobile freestyle demonstration at the next stop in Tignes, France, next month as organizers review safety protocols in the wake of Caleb Moore's death.
Moore died last month from injuries he sustained when his 450-pound sled rolled over him after a backflip gone wrong in Aspen, Colo. The tragedy left everyone involved — snowmobilers, the people who issue the permits for the event and the programmers at ESPN, which sanctions and televises the X Games — re-examining the niche sport.
In a statement released Tuesday, X Games officials said: "Our review of snowmobile freestyle continues."
The X Games stop in Tignes will be March 20-22 and feature some of the top freeskiers and snowboarders in the world.
