     ESPN has announced Winter X Games will not have snocross racing and Speed and Style, but will still have Freestyle and Best Trick snowmobiling.

    We received this official statement from ESPN below.

    "Each year the X Games monitor and evaluate the most appropriate sports for inclusion in each event and over time has continued to evolve in order to deliver the best product and most value for its athletes and fans.  At this time, we decided that ESPN will focus on the disciplines of Snowmobile Freestyle and Best Trick and will not bring back the discipline of SnoCross and Speed & Style to Winter X Games Aspen. 

    SnoCross has been a great element of the Winter X Games for the past 14 years.  We've enjoyed working with the athletes and look forward to seeing many of them in Aspen as they continue to compete in the other disciplines. "
