Kody Kamm #53 quote – “I try to get up here (Aspen) early and ride. Obviously this is a huge event, so I really try to stay away from all the craziness so I can keep focused. I really try to keep my head in a place so this is just like any other race.”

Justin Broberg #169 quote – “There’s a lot of hype coming into the X Games, so it’s easy to get distracted. I try to keep focused and treat it like any other race, but I also make sure to have fun and enjoy what a cool event it is.”

Nate Hentges, team owner quote – “We’ve been doing a fair bit of testing and having the guys ride up in the mountains the last few days to get the acclimated to the altitude. That’s pretty key in heading into an event like this. Hentges Racing has had a fair amount of success in the X Games with 7 medals, but the one we’re missing is the gold in snocross. I really would like to have that on our resume!”

Television coverage begins on ESPN and ESPN3D at 2p.m. EST through 6 p.m. EST
