Levi LeVallee to speak at SLEDNY Educational Forum
Event being held April 29 – May 1, 2016 in Lake Placid
NYSSA and SLEDNY are pleased to announce that Levi LeVallee will be joining us as the featured speaker at the Dinner Banquet at the 2016 SLEDNY Educational Forum. Levi will be competing in the 2016 X Games at Aspen, CO Jan 28-31. He holds the current world record for longest snowmobile distance jump of 412ft. He’s a passionate snowmobiler outside of competition, and has a lot to say about snowmobile safety.
Levi started riding snowmobiles at the young age of eight and from the start, he was hooked and wanted to give racing a try. After placing 2nd in his first snowmobile race, Levi has continued to succeed in racing and worked his way up to the Pro Class in 2003.
With the desire to win and the need for speed, after multiple snocross podiums and wins, Levi had the opportunity to try snowmobile freestyle. With the tricks coming naturally, Levi was able to win his first freestyle competition he entered (with only a month of practice) and was awarded an invite to compete in Freestyle, Speed & Style and Snocross in the 2008 Winter X Games (the most disciplines any snowmobile athlete had ever competed in).
Since then, Levi has continued to compete in all Snowmobile disciplines in the Winter X Games. He has earned himself a total of 10 Winter X Games medals (7 of which are gold), a snocross Championship Title, the first athlete to attempt a double backflip on a snowmobile and holds the current world record for longest snowmobile distance jump of 412ft (2011 Red Bull: New Year. No Limits. live on ESPN).
If being a racer and a freestyle rider wasn’t enough, Levi embarked upon a new opportunity of Team Owner, Team LaVallee in 2009. The future? It is unknown, but one this is certain- Levi has the determination and the desire to continue pushing the limits and elevating the sport of snowmobiling.
