Levi LaVallee and Robbie Maddison soared over 300 feet of water, and when they safely landed, both established new world records for distance jumping on a snowmobile and motorcycle, respectively, at Red Bull New Year No Limits
LaVallee who was slated to jump in the same event last year before a testing accident derailed his New Year's plans, redeemed himself in a big way - by breaking his existing certified world record of 361 feet with a leap of 412 feet 6 inches.
Levi LaVallee says: "I'm as excited as I think a person can be," said LaVallee. "I just landed an over 400-foot jump. I'm not sure how the sled's doing, but I'm OK, so it was good. It's an amazing feeling. You have no idea how pumped I am."
Maddison also achieved history by breaking his existing certified world record of 351 feet 3 inches by more than 30 feet, landing 378 feet 9 inches from his take-off ramp.
Robbie Maddison says: "It's a cool feeling to do what I do and have the backing I do," said Maddison. "I was confident we were going to go a long way tonight and we're going to come back and go even further."
