FILE - In this Jan. 25, 2009, file photo, Joe Parsons releases his hands from his snowmobile in the night sky during the snowmobile freestyle competition at the Winter X Games at Buttermilk Ski Area near Aspen, Colo. After the death last month of an X Games competitor in a snowmobile crash, people involved--snowmobilers, other action sports stars, the people who issue the permits and the programmers at ESPN, which sanctions and televises the X Games--re-examining a niche event in an action-sports world that has, for decades, lured its audience by thumbing its nose at danger.
