In honor of Winter X Games 2015, we thought we would touch base on mind games, and how to get back in the saddle after a gnarly wreck and / or injury.
We have all been there. You know the uninviting feeling of “Oh, this is going to hurt!” just before you hit the ground. Being injured is no fun and it takes some courage sometimes to come back and get going again.
As the old saying goes, “if you fall off the horse you have to get back on”. Levi Lavallee is no stranger to that philosophy and he has had his fair share of spills, bails and crashes.
Lavallee is a 7x Winter X Games Snowmobile Gold Medalist and holds down the world record for the longest distance jumped on a snowmobile of over 400+ feet and was the first first to do a double back flip on a sled.
Take a moment to to watch the quick video below and get an inside look on how Levi Lavallee overcomes his fears.
