Winter X Games star Levi LaVallee will attempt to break the world record for the longest snowmobile jump, and he won’t even use snow to do it!
The Longville, Minnesota, native will make his jump on ramps set up at Embarcadero Marina Park on San Diego Bay on December 31 in the latest edition of the “Red Bull: New Year. No Limits.” series. LaVallee’s attempt will come one year after Travis Pastrana broke the rally car jump-distance in Long Beach, California, for the same event.
The Polaris snocross racer will have to clear a 300-foot water gap in his attempt to break the current record of 301 feet, set by Paul Thacker in 2009 at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota.
The only snow in sight will be fake stuff sprayed on the landing ramp. LaVallee’s jump will be shown live on ESPN.
