Ski-Doo riders had a successful weekend at the Winter X 2013, earning seven medals in the snowmobile competitions.
Joe Parsons topped all snowmobile competitors, collecting medals in each of the three events he entered, including silver in Freestyle and Best Trick. Parsons stepped up his game to carry the torch when his teammate and defending Best Trick winner Heath Frisby suffered two hard practice crashes on Thursday.
Frisby was forced to withdraw from the Freestyle competition and limped through the Speed and Style event, in which Parsons earned the bronze medal. Frisby did take part in Best Trick on Sunday night and appeared to have a winning run when he threw out his signature Underflip, but judges saw it differently. In his second run, Frisby tried to raise the bar even higher with a variation, but was unable to land the trick. Still, Frisby earned a bronze medal for his efforts. Parsons then unleashed his Gator Wrestler backflip and added a new twist by landing it backward to the roar of the crowd, earning the silver.
