LaVallee to Miss Blackjack National.
LONGVILLE, Minn., December 8, 2011 – This coming weekend, December 10th and 11th, most of Team LaVallee will be heading north to the Blackjack Ski Resort in Bessemer, MI for the second race on the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series (ACSS). However, Team LaVallee’s pro rider, Levi LaVallee will not be able to compete in the Blackjack National. Immediately following the AMSOIL Duluth National, LaVallee left for California to do another round of testing for his Red Bull: New Year. No Limits. distance jump. With Santa Ana winds blowing strong throughout Southern California, testing was put on-hold until the winds were calm and the conditions were right to start jumping again.
“It was tough decision to miss the Blackjack National, but I knew that there was more testing needed for my distance jump. And ultimately, safety is my first priority and I want to make sure I have this jump dialed for New Years. So I am going to stay here in California, continue to test, and hopefully I can still catch the races online.” states LaVallee.
Team LaVallee’s other pro rider, Bobby LePage will only be doing starts this coming weekend as LePage suffered an injury to his leg late this fall and still has not been given approval to ride from his doctor. Team LaVallee’s Pro Lites Rider, Jake Scott will be riding this coming weekend and hopes to have a successful weekend of racing!
