Team LaVallee brings on Jimmy “Blaze” Fejes for Snowmobile Freestyle, XGames 2012.
Longville, MN (January 23, 2012) - With Team LaVallee’s freestyle riders, Levi LaVallee and Daniel Bodin out for Winter X Games 2012 (both were injured in separate training incidents during preparation for X Games), Team LaVallee was on the hunt - looking for a freestyle rider that could represent Team LaVallee.
Jimmy “Blaze” Fejes was called last week to see if he would be interested in representing Team LaVallee for the 2012 Winter X Games. With less than a week before the games begin, Fejes accepted the offer and was on the next flight to northern Minnesota to train at Levi LaVallee’s facility.
“We were excited coming into Winter X Games 2012 knowing we had two top level riders, and unfortunately both got hurt. And being this late in the game, we are fortunate to be able to bring on another XGames caliber rider, such as Jimmy Blaze Fejes, on to our team.” states Glenn Kafka (co-owner to Team LaVallee).
Fejes has attended multiple Winter X Games and most recently took 3rd place at Red Bull: Fuel + Fury, 2011 - a snowmobile freestyle competition held at iconic Wrigley Field, an event that was hosted by Levi LaVallee.
