FLY RIDERS SWEEP X GAMES FREESTYLE MEDALSJanuary 24, 2014 - 4:46 PM
X Games Aspen got things rolling on Thursday night with the Snowmobile Freestyle Finals and the event was action packed as expected. FLY team riders Colten Moore, Heath Frisby, Joe Parson, Sam Rogers and Willie Elam each showed fine form throwing down clean runs and getting great television coverage on ESPN.
But it was Colten Moore who set the course on fire, drawing inspiration from his brother, the late Caleb Moore, with a tribute run that had the crowd getting behind him 110%. Moore's flawless run garnered him the Gold Medal, followed by fellow FLY team riders Joe Parsons taking the Silver and Heath Frisby taking Bronze. The internet even got behind Colten Moore as the hashtag #RideForCaleb was trending on Twitter during the live boradcast of the event. All-in-all it was one electric evening of Freestyle competition.
