LaVallee to Compete in Arctic Man

Levi LaVallee and Daron Rhalves join forces in a combined downhill ski and snowcross competition.
Longville, MN / April 3, 2014   – Repost from Red Bull

The Arctic Man. The name sounds like something out of a classified military special ops file. In reality, it’s a competition that gauges exactly one thing: how much are you willing to push the limits? Two men, a snowmobile, and a pair of skis all combine to test the mettle of some of the world’s top ski and snowcross athletes in the frosty temps of Anchorage, Alaska.

On April 11th, snowmobiler Levi LaVallee and skier Daron Rahlves will team up to take on the Arctic Man. Daron is no stranger to downhill, having won World Cups in Super G and most recently competing in skicross. Daron and the rest of the skiers will kick the race off as they tackle a course starting at 5,800 feet of elevation, dropping 1,700 feet in less than two miles to their partners waiting on snowmobiles.

As Daron meets Levi, he will grab a towrope and be towed approximately 2.25 miles up to another peak, reaching speeds of up to 90 mph. Levi’s mind is wide open at that point, as is his sled as they charge up the treacherous course. From there, Daron will hit another downhill course, dropping 1,200 feet in elevation before reaching the finish line.

The Arctic Man mantra is a fitting “Go fast or go home.” In 2014, the competitors will celebrate the 29th anniversary of the Arctic Man, along with the 10,000-plus spectators who brave the brisk conditions to take in some of the most hardcore athletes that snow has ever produced. It will be an entirely new challenge for both Levi and Daron, but they have a knack of rising to the occasion.

Lieders Tops the Podium in Lake Geneva Finale

Longville, MN (March 19, 2014) - The final race of the season brought us to the Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The Lake Geneva Finale has been noted for having the largest and best race tracks of the season and this year, it did not disappoint. The track consisted of a huge up hill start, followed but 3 down hill sections and a technical whoop section. It was a crowd-pleasing weekend with year-end points battles going on, each race and each finish counted to see which rider would end up on top.

 

The Lake Geneva Finale was a 3-day race weekend for the Pro’s, a first in the ISOC national series, while Pro Lite competed on just Saturday and Sunday. The highlight from the weekend was Pro Lite rider, Kyle Pallin securing his 3rd place overall points standings for the 2013/2014 Race Season with great finishes throughout the weekend. Rookie Pro Rider, Jake Scott had an impressive weekend with good qualifying and making it into each final. Scott finished out the season in 11th place overall. Team LaVallee’s co-owner and Pro rider, Levi LaVallee placed 10th overall for this season. LaVallee missed racing Round 2 and the Final on Sunday afternoon, after a tough off in Round 1. LaVallee went to a nearby ER for an examination and found a punctured lung and fractured ribs. LaVallee was released from the hospital on Monday and is expected to return to riding within a couple of weeks.

 

Pro Lite Rider, Andy Lieders had a perfect day of racing on Saturday, sweeping his qualifiers and taking the top spot on the podium in the Pro Lite #1 Final. Going into Sunday, Lieders was sitting 3rd overall in the Pro Lite Points standings, but after a tough crash in Round 1, Lieders was unable to compete the rest of the day. Lieders finished the year at an excellent overall 5th place.

 

“It’s been a great year for Team LaVallee. We learned a lot and each rider steadily improved throughout the season and our sleds kept getting stronger. I am so proud of the entire team on another awesome season in the books. Looking forward to seeing what the next year has in store for us!” - Levi LaVallee (Co-Owner/Racer, Team LaVallee)
