2013 X Games snowmobile rider Caleb Moore remains in critical condition in a Colorado hospital after his crash at the freestyle finals.

The 25-year-old Texan was performing a relatively routine backflip in his run when he under rotated, causing the front skis to catch the top of the landing ramp, throwing him off the sled. As he slid down the ramp, the snowmobile came flipping towards him and striking his body at least once.
