Winter Xgames 14

Sooo Excited for the Xgames this season, same with the Olympics. But one question...will they be airing the practices for the Xgames? I usualy just watch the finals but theres a lot of rippers riding this year who I REALLY apreciate and want to watch the practices aswell.

Rider Roster:
WX14 Invited Athletes: Snowboard - Winter X 14 - ESPN

What are your fav riders entering this year?
Mine are
Halldor Helgason, Travis Rice, and Torstein Horgmo for Big Air
Eiki Helgason, Halldor Helgason, Torstein Horgmo and Travis Rice for Slopestyle.

Ive been a loyal fan for torstein, travis, and the helgason brothers for over a year...gotta support them. Allthough, i feel as though torstein should have won last year's big air, I feel that trav will blow everyone out of the water. Mad support for Halldor Helgason for only being 19 and blasting out double cork 10's. Eiki Helgason is just huge and awesome.

Helgason Pride

I agree, Torsein is awesome, like you said he oozes steez, he rips on everything too, from rails to jumps to powder

Travis Rice is definitely my favorite rider though, he just throws things that I can't even imagine doing/know what to call

Haha yeah and I'll totally agree with you there. One of my favorites for sure. People always say hes a hucker wit no style, but shit, what he throws is completely his style; who else is throwing that shit on insainly huge jumps. bonus points for riding with the DC team. I'd marry him.

Def want to see Andreas return to the top as well as good showings from Torstein and Haldor. I'm surprised Lago's not in it after having the best run last year (although not winning). But he is in line for an olympic spot so it's understandable.

I don't blame you for falling asleep during freestyle snowmobiling. Shit's boring as hell to watch on TV.

Yeah, that is one sport with a limited # of tricks and only so much you can really do. Those snowmobiles weigh more than street motorcycles!

I don't get ESPN (real basic cable) so I gotta go to a buddies house to watch it. My favorites are the Helgason's and Torestein for sure.
