Live Chat: Oakley Freestyle Snowmobile Star Levi LaVallee Amps Up For Winter X Games at 6 p.m. Pacific – Tuesday
Levi LaVallee smashed his way into history on New Year’s Eve.
Just after midnight on the East Coast, Oakley’s star Freestyle Snowmobiler rocketed over 300 feet of water – safely landing and effectively shattering his own world record for distance jumping on a snowmobile, clearing 412 feet, 6 inches before a national audience (ESPN) over a Marina Park in San Diego, Calif.
All just about a year after a horrific accident left him with broken ribs, a cracked pelvis, a collaped lung and a punctured second lung after slamming into the ground while training for his 2010 “Red Bull: New Year. No Limits.” jump.
His 2011 try was a glorious triumph. And now, riding immense momentum, he’s gearing up for his return to Winter X Games. Chat live with him tonight (Jan. 10) at 6 p.m. Pacific below!
