Maybe I don't know exactly how it works this year, or how qualifications will go down...but it just seems like there are some omissions from the lists. Andri Ragettli, hate him or love him, through his instagram is doing not only doing triples in all directions with no shirt on even less, and is also doing all kinds of innovative dubs as well. Fabian Boesch, while invited to do big air, is not on the slopestyle list and he just put down a silver at Dew Tour...
Russ Henshaw was able to hang in SLVSH with Evan MC for the longest game ever recorded and he's not on the invite list either. Also, from the pipe, I find it strange that Byron Wells is invited and not Beau James Wells. No disrespect to Byron, but Beau James, like Fabian, just got a silver at Dew Tour and it doesn't make sense to me that he wouldn't be able to be in the X Games half pipe when he's clearly able to compete at the highest levels.
Anyway, that's just my long assrant, but is there any actual input from us that goes into this invitation process. I mean if I could have my say I would definitely have Dean Berco doing eddie flips or whatever all over the place.
