Levi LaVallee has fully recovered from injuries suffered in a crash while training for a record-breaking snowmobile distance jump and he’s ready to try it again. This time, he’ll have a little company.
LaVallee will be attempting to break the snowmobile distance jump record at the same time as Robbie Maddison will try to break the motorcycle distance jump record in the latest installment of Red Bull: New Year. No Limits. The event will air live from San Diego, Calif., on Saturday, Dec. 31 at approximately 11 pm ET / 8 pm PT on ESPN, ESPNHD and ESPN3, immediately following the Chick-Fil-A Bowl.
This year, LaVallee, a 28-year-old native of Longville, Minn., will jump his snowmobile alongside Maddison, a 30-year-old Aussie now living in Temecula, Calif., who will pilot his motorcycle as both athletes concurrently jump over 300 feet of water from the North park to the South park at the Embarcadero Marina Park in the downtown area of San Diego Bay. LaVallee will attempt to break his own record of 361 feet and Maddison will be aiming for a leap of more than 400 feet to eclipse the current record of 391 feet.
