Watch: Huge crowds see daredevil backflip a snowmobile over Nicollet Mall

Huge crowds gathered to watch the stunt.

Nicollet Mall was as packed as it's been all week as crowds gathered to watch a daredevil's spectacular snowmobile stunt.

Minnesota stuntman Levi LaVallee's backflip attempt was arguably the showpiece event of the 10-day long Super Bowl Live festival, and thousands turned up to see if he could pull it off.

After other daredevils entertain the throng with lower risk (but still pretty darn dangerous) jumps over the street, LaVallee had his turn at 2 p.m.
