Teams such as Zip-Ty Husqvarna and Monster Energy Kawasaki are not only preparing for the excitement of X Games, but for the start of one of the most prestigious off-road championships of the year. "It's X Games, but it's a points-paying round of EnduroCross. So it's our job as a team to put the fact that it's X Games aside for a little bit and just get ready for our season." Still, for some, such as Kawasaki's Destry Abbott, the X Games event presents an opportunity of a lifetime. "I'm not going for the championship because I don't get to do the whole series. But I really want to do good at X Games and put in good results. I'm pretty happy with my career and what I've accomplished, but I think if I got a medal at X Games, that would be my biggest accomplishment, as far as racing goes."
