The decision to discontinue the Best events follows, but is not directly to, an investigation into the … of Best Trick competitor Moore in January, according to an spokesman.

Moore died of head and injuries sustained during the Freestyle competition at X Games 2013, where he under-rotated a attempt and crumpled under the of his tumbling snowmobile. A Freestyle demonstration previously scheduled for week at X Games Tignes in had previously been canceled a before Tuesday’s announcement.

Yet it’s also been one of the dangerous events from the Carey Hart crashed a attempt during the event at X 7 in Philadelphia, also in 2001, several bones.

X Games continue to host freestyle competition, ESPN said.
