So, heres a bizarre one from Aspen: Shaun White, one of snowboardings most decorated players wasnt invited to the 2016 X Games and wont compete this weekend. White had started off the year extremely well, acquiring the Dew Tour Halfpipe event in December.
He wasnt invited, Danny Chi, a spokesman for the Winter X Games told the Denver Post. No more detailed explanation was given but White pretty much facilitated put the X Competition on the delineate: the 29 -year-old, two-time Olympic gold medalist has prevailed 15 X Games ambers over some 16 times( he made his debut in 2000 at 13 ).
White pushed through tough, snowy living conditions in Breckenridge, Colorado during his December win on the Dew Tour, amazing 2014 Olympic champ Iouri Podladtchikov: It was super impressive. You could see Shauns got the most experience out of all of us.
The Flying Tomato is clearly still a pavilion mention that reverberates with the mainstream. Surely a bummer, especially for those of us who love comeback stories.
White cleared information the coming week when he became an investor in Mammoth Resorts, which owns, Bear Mountain, June Mountain, Snow Summit and Mammoth. Im going to help make it better than ever, and Im stimulated with the opportunity, he said.
