Trying to define core is silly. Something either is, or is not. While the X Games are polarizing in their “coreness”, there’s no doubt that it’s a major accomplishment just to be invited. Trevor Jacob cracked a back 3 on the first jump of the Boarder X course today during his consolation race. While he may not have won, he put a smile on the face of all those watching that call themselves a Snowboarder. Trevor is a bad ass.
