Practicing for the longest snowmobile jump in history

On New Year’s Eve, Levi LaVallee will attempt to set a new distance record for a snowmobile jump, hopefully clearing a 300 foot water gap in San Diego. The attempt will be the headline act at “Red Bull: New Year. No Limits.” which last year saw Travis Pastrana manage only 269 feet in his rally car.

    Last years deal is long beach was about 95% hype. The jump was cool, but it reeked of trying too hard. Then again, it’s still better than spending that money on billboards or TV ads.

    I think its pretty snazzy what RED Bull is doing.

    Ever see snow machines drag race on asphalt? Big contact patch, no wheelying. They put wheels on the front skids. More acceleration than anything out there. I seen it at Oxford Speedway in Maine, they run after motorcycles and consistently blow them away. By a lot.
