Aspen, CO (January 26, 2012) - Team LaVallee brought on Jimmy Blaze Fejes last week to represent the team at Winter X Games 2012, for the snowmobile freestyle event held tonight (Thursday) at 8:15pm-9:00pm central standard time. Unfortunately, before practice yesterday - Fejes had to go through ESPN/XGames medical in order to get cleared to ride at XGames. Fejes had broken his femur two months ago, riding his snowmobile at a freestyle show held in Mexico. Since then, he had gotten clearance from his doctor in Texas, but the ESPN/XGames medics did not give Fejes the green light to ride. Fejes will now sit out for the 2012 Winter X Games.
“It has been a tough go for our team and finding a healthy rider for the X Games. We did all we could and it just wasn’t in our favor this year.” states Glenn Kafka (co-owner to Team LaVallee).
Levi LaVallee will however be commentating tonight during the Freestyle final and will also be on X Center following tonights XGames coverage. Be sure to tune in tonight, (Thursday - Jan. 26th) from 8:00-9:15pm central standard time on ESPN for the snowmobile freestyle competition.
