Levi LaVallee Performs World Record Snowmobile Jump.

Back in the day daredevils like Evel Knievel would push the boundaries of distance jumps with everything from automobiles to motorcycles. Over the last 30 years though stunt jockeys have evolved, and with that so have the stunts themselves. Last year for instance X-Games superstar and Red Bull rally driver Travis Pastrana decided that he could jump a Subaru STI from a pier in Long Beach, CA onto a floating barge. He cleared 269 feet with that jump and from that moment on, upped the ante for all others to follow. We are now closing in on 2011 and this year Red Bull has returned, but this time with a snow mobile and rider Levi LaVallee at the controls. LeVallee was supposed to make a jump on December 31, but unfortunately due to an injury that happened shortly after this video, that won’t be happening. The above video shows LaVallee setting a new distance record of 361-feet (on a practice run), a distance that surpasses the existing record by 60-feet. The most amazing thing about this video is that LaVallee’s actual air-time is over 8-seconds long, which is simply astonishing.
