Best Trick Returns to the X Games 2017
X Games returns to Aspen, Colorado’s Buttermilk Mountain from January 26-29 and Snowmobile Best Trick is back in the lineup for the first time since 2013. Snow Bike racing will be a newly introduced discipline.
Daniel Bodin won Best Trick Gold in 2013. His Indian air backflip set the bar, not so much for its originality as its clean delivery across the course’s 100-foot gap, hitting the 90-point mark.
Most spectacular were Joe Parson’s innovative “gator hater” and Heath Frisby’s underflip which both made history with their new introduction to the competition, but they landed across the lesser 75-foot gap.
Stay tuned. The first full round of invited athletes will be announced November 16. It’s gonna be a good show!
