Caleb Moore wrecked his snowmobile on the first day of the 2013 Winter X Games in Aspen Colorado. On Thursday he passed away as result of injuries suffered from that crash. Family spokeswoman Chelsea Lawson released a statement announcing Moore’s death, which occurred Thursday morning. The family declined to release any other details of his injuries. It is the first death in the Winter X Games, which had its 17th edition in Aspen last week. “We are deeply saddened by Caleb Moore’s passing and our thoughts and prayers go out to his parents, Wade and Michelle, his brother, Colten, and the entire Moore family,” ESPN said in a statement released Thursday. “He will be remembered for his natural passion for life and his deep love for his family and friends, and he will always be an inspiration to everyone he touched in the action sports community.” Moore won a silver medal in best snowmobile trick during the 2012 X Games.
