Video: A 412 foot jump from a snowmobile's point of view
Once again the crazy folks at Red Bull staged an epic jump for New Year. This time it involved a motorbike, a snowmobile and a 412 foot leap over lots of cold water. Presumably said water was filled with bits of other snowmobiles that failed to make the leap.
SnoCross racer and part-time loon Levi LaValle (who happens to have the coolest name this side of Lambo test driver Max Venturi) took up the challenge and was joined by dirt biker Robbie Maddison.Yes, you'd have to be mad to leap something that predominantly goes on snow over, well, very warm snow and launch it from something that is also not snow. But Red Bull is as Red Bull does.
But that is a mere technicality – especially if the rumours of a $2million pay packet for the death defying stunt are true.
Anyway, the footage is below and do enjoy it. We imagine Levi's talking a little higher than he used to, though.
