Look Out for Levi


One down, two to go for Levi LaVallee, who’s the first snowmobile rider to compete in racing and freestyle events at Winter X Games 12.

The Red Bull athlete earned his first gold medal of the Winter X weekend Thursday night in the debut of snowmobile speed and style, a unique event that combines acceleration and elevation. “Lauchin’ Levi” proved he’s the best at both, defeating Sam Rogers in the final.

“I just really enjoy jumping,” LaVallee said. “I think it’s fun. So doing this, jumping and throwing tricks, I’m just having a ball doing it. I’m a racer … that’s what I do.”

The victory marked LaVallee’s second X Games gold (2004 in hillcross was the first), and he has two events to go — snocross and freestyle.

And for the record, Tanner Hall took superpipe gold — again! He edged fellow Red Bull skier Simon Dumont in the final for the second straight year.

Congrats to Levi for his 2nd gold medal. Great job.

On another note: I tried to access brianvickers.com website and it no longer exist. Can anyone offer some infor into this change as well as status of the Club V fan club for 2008?

On a few days left before you can "Go get 'em boys!"

I have also tried to access brianvickers.com today and it says it can't find the website.

Congrats Levi on getting two gold medals.

Brian's website is undergoing construction, it will be back up when this is completed. Club V will be back for 2008.
