    Caleb MooreRenowned snowmobile freestyler Caleb Moore has died from injuries he suffered in a crash at the Winter X Games a week ago.

    The 25-year-old Moore was knocked unconscious in the crash and was evaluated for a concussion and other injuries. While he was being evaluated, it was discovered that he was bleeding around the heart and was airlifted to Grand Junction, Colo. for emergency heart surgery. A couple of days later doctors discovered a secondary complication involving his brain. Moore was unable to recover from his injuries and passed away Thursday morning.

    “He will be truly missed and never forgotten,” the Moore family said in a statement. “The family wishes to express their deep gratitude for all the prayers and support they have received from all the fans, friends and family around the world that Caleb has inspired.”

      Heath Frisby Snowmobile Front FlipIf you thought you’d seen it all on a snowmobile, freestyler Heath Frisby has once again proved you wrong. Frisby took home a Winter X Games Snowmobile Best Trick gold medal after he completed the first ever snowmobile front flip in competition on Sunday.

      If mustering up the courage to even attempt a trick like that isn’t enough, it happened just moments after friend Justin Hoyer was taken off on a stretcher following a nasty crash when he attempted a double backflip. Hoyer was transported to hospital where he received X-rays on his right arm and left leg.

      Frisby has now earned seven X Games medals in his career, including two gold medals in Snowmobile Best Trick. Check out videos of Frisby’s successful front flip and Hoyer’s double backflip attempt below the jump.

        Levi LaVallee has returned to Fox’s roster of world-class athletes after being away for just one season. LaVallee’s 2011-2012 season will be action-packed with snocross, Winter X Games, and a New Year’s Eve distance jump over 300 feet of water in San Diego. LaVallee has his sights set on breaking his own distance jumping record of 361 feet, set during practice for the same stunt in 2010.

        “Being back on Fox shocks, I look at how can I redefine my limits and take it to the next level in freestyle, distance jumping, and snocross,” says LaVallee. “Riding on Fox gives me the confidence to push myself to go bigger, farther, and faster.

        “This is so much more than just a sponsorship deal; I’m once again part of a suspension family that supports me at every level on and off the track.”
