NZ's Wells brothers invited to X Games Aspen
Wanaka freeski brothers Jossi, Byron and Beau-James Wells will feature amongst the invite-only field competing at X Games Aspen this week.
Byron and Beau-James will compete in the SuperPipe elimination tonight with hopes of graduating through to Saturday's finals.
Byron's best X Games result came at Tignes last year when he placed ninth in the SuperPipe.
Beau-James' career best result to date was a fifth place finish at the Dew Tour Pipe finals in Breckenridge, Colorado in December.
Jossi will take part in the Big Air competition on Sunday and the slopestyle final on Monday morning.
An X Games veteran, he has previously won silver medals in both the slopestyle and SuperPipe, as well as a bronze medal in the Big Air in 2012.
Jossi finished 12th and 14th, respectively, in the SuperPipe and slopestyle at Aspen last year, but won a silver medal in the slopestyle at Tignes in 2012.
All three are awaiting news on Olympic selection, with the New Zealand team for Sochi to be confirmed tomorrow.
