Snowmobiles And Double Backflips
Saw this over the weekend on Fark Sports, so I thought I’d share. What we have is Levi Lavallee’s double backflip attempt for ESPN’s Winter X Games. While Lavallee didn’t stick the landing, it was close enough for my enjoyment–although, the judges expect competitors to finish the trick, which obviously includes the landing portion. Stupid rules. Because he didn’t stick the landing, Lavallee lost the event to Dane Ferguson, who did a single flip, but finished his trick off with the proper landing.
While I’m not a winter sports fan, I do appreciate when these guys risk life and limb just to entertain those of us that are. I’d say it’s one helluva rush feeling a heavy snowmobile rotate in the air with you on the seat. I can’t imagine how two flips would feel. “Out of control” comes to mind.
