BOSS Racing heads to Aspen, Colorado to compete against the world’s top action sport athletes during Winter X Games 15, January 27-30. The event hosts up to 200 elite athletes in several extreme snow disciplines on Boards, Skis and Sleds.
BOSS Pro, Brett Turcotte (#16) has been training hard for this event and has been in Colorado with crew chief, Jayme Cheney for the past week dialing things in.
“This is the big show; the one all of us prepare for year-round.” Winter X is the most challenging course we will see this season; a mayhem producing slice up the side of Buttermilk Mountain; in the fray will be 25 of the top snowmobile athletes from Canada, Sweden and the United States. The whole team is heavily invested- entrenched in battle mode and stacking up days of tireless effort.
Winter X Games elevates medalists to instant worldwide fame and has exposed athletes like Shaun White, Doug Henry, and Blair Morgan to a whole new audience. Its where the money is made.
Gold medal athletes sign lucrative endorsement deals and sponsors can rocket to top-of-mind in an instant. Winter X Games has been ESPN’s highest-rated and most-viewed program over the past 3 years. In 2010, the television audience had ballooned to 43 million.
