Winter X Games VII
MILK, IT does a body good. Such is the mantra for the more than 250 athletes who will take on Aspen's Buttermilk Mountain, the site of this year's Winter X festivities. The games are a snowy smorgasbord featuring skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, Moto X and UltraCross (a relay that combines skiing and snowboarding). Among the participants to watch: 1998 Olympic moguls champion Jonny Moseley, who will compete in the Ski SuperPipe; Torah Bright, Australia's 16-year-old snowboard star; and anyone in the Evel Knievel-inspired Moto X Big Air, in which competitors on motorbikes will attempt to become the first to land a back-flip on snow. (Mike Metzger and Carey Hart both nailed backflips on dirt at X Games VIII in Philadelphia in August.) ESPN will air a daily highlight show from 12-1 a.m. EST, and there will be an across-the-dial, all-day orgy on Feb. I that will include Skiing Slopestyle (2:30 p.m., ABC), Snowmobile Snocross (5 p.m., ESPN2) and Men's and Women's
Snowboarding SuperPipe (9:30 p.m., ESPN).
