It takes way more strength and mind power on these sports than going out with a team catching a ball. He will truly be missed.
Also to fix this sport nothing we all know the risk as do i (race mx) there are tons of safety gear you can buy to help sustain injury neck braces pads guards RIP

Re: Caleb Moore Dies From Injuries After Winter X Games Snowmobile Crash, What Needs to Be Done Now To Fix Sport?
DENVER -- Caleb Moore, an innovative freestyle snowmobile rider who was hurt in a crash at the Winter X Games in Colorado, died Thursday morning. He was 25.

Moore was being treated at a hospital in Grand Junction since the Jan. 24 crash. Family spokeswoman Chelsea Lawson confirmed his death, the first in the 18 year history of the X Games, which are produced by ESPN.

"He lived his life to the fullest. He was an inspiration," Lawson said.

A former all-terrain vehicle racer, Moore switched over to snowmobiles as a teenager and quickly rose to the top of the sport. He won four Winter X Games medals, including a bronze last season when his younger brother, Colten, captured gold.

Caleb Moore was attempting a backflip in the freestyle event in Aspen when the skis on his 450-pound snowmobile caught the lip of the landing area, sending him flying over the handlebars. Moore landed face first into the snow with his snowmobile rolling over him.

Moore stayed down for quite some time, before walking off with help and going to a hospital to treat a concussion. Moore developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to a hospital in Grand Junction for surgery. The family later said that Moore, of Krum, Texas, also had a complication involving his brain.

Colten Moore was injured in a separate crash that same night. He suffered a separated pelvis in the spill.

It was only a matter of time until someone died from the stunts they try to do with those snowmobiles on the X Games.

The only surprise to me is that it took so many years before it happened.

"IF" they keep the snowmobiles in the X-Games and keep pushing the envelope of the stunts they try to do with them look for additional deaths in future years.

I call BS that he died from the crash.

Anyone know what really happened?

He had emergency surgery for bleeding around the heart. What if the doctors made a mistake during surgery which caused him to become brain dead?

He was a donor.

Just saying

True enough there are many situations where a doctor will take some dollars under the table to let a donor die for some rich bastard. However, brain complications are, well, complicated and to die after an accident due to injuries of any sort is not uncommon. With brain injuries it is even more of a risk.

Fix the sport? Why? Snowmobile jumping is dangerous in and of itself. Sometime bad things happen to good people. Shit happens and that's the chance you take when you participate in that kind of activity.

I'm sick and tired of the nanny state. That man knew the risks involved in jumping a 500+ lb machine like that.
Ban guns to "save the children" but killing them in the womb is totally cool......I see; it makes perfect sense now.

If it was safe an easy, then no one would do it.

This doesn't need a fix, just informed choice.
