Levi LaVallee was injured while practicing for his planned world record snowmobile distance jump at this year’s Red Bull: New Year. No Limits. Unfortunately, due to LaVallee’s injury the event has been cancelled. However, that doesn’t mean a new snowmobile distance record hasn’t been set.
Leading up to the event, LaVallee, who is expected to make a full recovery, worked with athlete performance experts, aerodynamics experts and engineers, in addition to his core team, in an effort to get the most out of his body and snowmobile. During testing, LaVallee jumped an astounding 361 feet, eclipsing the existing record by 60 feet. This jump will be submitted for world record certification.
