Athletes, fans turn to Facebook to plead for return of skicross and boardercross at Winter X Games

X Games athletes and fans are coming together on social media in an effort to bring skiercross and boardercross events back to the 2013 Winter X Games in Aspen.

Much of the effort is focused on the Facebook page,  “Bring Back the X Course to Winter X Games,” created by Olympic skiercross racer Chris Del Bosco, his sister Heather Centurioni and six-time X Games boardercross gold medalist Nate Holland. Read more in the Aspen Daily News.

Skier X and Snowboarder X were dropped as events for the upcoming Winter X Games back in August, even though the event has ALWAYS been a part of the X Games AND it’s an Olympic sport. Past medalists, such as Aspen’s Casey Puckett, were understandably disappointed. Here’s what Casey had to say to the Aspen Daily News.

Read the story to learn more. And happily, they didn’t rule out the event’s return.
