LEVI LAVALLEE TAKES SNOWMOBILING TO THE STREETS OF SAINT PAUL

X-Games Legend Takes Freestyle Snowmobiling to an Urban Environment

SAINT PAUL – MARCH 8, 2016 – A few weeks ago, professional snocross and freestyle snowmobile champ Levi LaVallee ripped through the streets of Saint Paul, MN – making the city his ultimate freestyle playground. The Minnesota native and 10 time X-Games medalist hucked his snowmobile all over the capital city – from backflipping the overlook near the Capital Building to hitting high-speed distance jumps in the backstreets of Saint Paul. The groundbreaking video officially debuted today at redbull.com/motorsports and features 4 ½ minutes of urban freestyle heaven.

Some people see the world as a playground, where anything and everything can and will be a shreddable obstacle. As a kid growing up in Minnesota, Levi LaVallee looked at his state’s capital Saint Paul like a ripe fruit, begging to be plucked, and ripped to shreds on his snowmobile. A land of opportunity that only he could see, it was his mission to take that city over on his trusty sled. Now, he’s done it.

“As a kid, you’re always looking at things like ‘Oh, I could probably jump that,’ when you’re driving through a city. To be able to actually go do that, it was like a fairy tale,” said LaVallee. “There was quite a few high risk jumps out there. One that I was really nervous about to begin with was the bridge drop. That was scary, until I actually did it, then I realized it wasn’t so bad.”

This is the first known project of a freestyle snowmobiler taking his sport to an urban environment – it’s truly one of a kind.
