Simon Tabron winner of the Louisville, Ken. Dew Action Sports Tour stop said: "It's great to be invited to something so exclusive; it's recognition that your riding is valid," "I've competed in seven X Games since 1998. I missed out because of injury in 2005." "(X Games) is traditionally the biggest of the year and the hardest to win. So far, I'm happy to have come out swinging after the winter. I've won everything I've entered this year but I'm not happy with a couple of aspects of my riding. I'm going to be working hard between now and X to improve!"
