sad story .. maybe we shouldn't be trying to flip snowmobiles .. i wonder when the lawyers will start suing the xgames ....(do they even have any money) as this seems to be way more dangerous than constant blows to the head .
There is an inherent risk in any sporting event. Its sad when it happens but in some instances accidents can't be helped. The stuff they try to do is risky which is why its entertaining.

True...Wasn't there a death to a downhill skier at the last Winter Olympics?
A snowmobile to the head its pretty risky.
Id like to know who decided that was a good idea.

flipping snowmobiles just seems pretty stupid if you ask me
I've become less and less of a fan of inherently dangerous sports. About 20 years ago I saw a man get killed at the Indy 500. He was sitting about 15 rows behind me, and a tire shot off a car, sailed through the air and hit him and killed him instantly. He was sitting in the stands with both of his parents. An accident can happen in any sport, but some sports just have a lot more risk to the particpants and spectators than others.
I think dying should be banned.
Time is slipping on you, It was almost 27 years ago (1986). Last time I went to Indy was 1977.
be careful or the government may want to ban snowmobiles
I bet if they checked into it that he owned a gun.
I was real good friends with Scott Brayton, Gordon Johncock and the whole racing crew, I moved to Coldwater Michigan when I was 13 so we became friends in school. I got Scott's very last autograph for a friend of mine in Kentucky, signing day he didn't feel well so he stayed in his trailer, I got to go seen him and spend some time with him. I haven't watched Indy since he died.

Wow, I guess it does!
There really isn't any room for the lawyers to get involved here. You can sue for anything, but assumption of the risk is a big part of being able to win any lawsuit. If you're doing snowmobile tricks at the Xgames, you've assumed the risk of a snowmobile landing on your head. It's awful, but there won't be lawsuits over accidents like this unless the cause is for something outside the accepted realm of the sport in question.
That's what McDonalds thought when they started serving coffee.
Maybe we can do background checks to see if they have flipped other things before.
