Gus Kenworthy and Jossi Wells will be the only two skiers to compete in slopestyle, big air and superpipe at this year’s Winter X Games. Invitations to the X Games are difficult to earn, so being invited to compete in all three disciplines is a high compliment from the most coveted competition in the sport.
Kenworthy sums up the magnitude of X Games:
“X Games is not only the most important event to me, I would say that it’s the pinnacle event in our sport. Because the number of invited riders is so limited, the skiers in each discipline are the best of the best and it really adds a dramatic feel to the whole competition.” – Gus Kenworthy
Jossi Wells agrees with Gus:
” X Games is for sure the most important event of the season.” – Jossi Wells
