Calling all adrenaline junkies and extreme sports fanatics! Red Bull’s Crashed Ice brings its thrilling, high-energy and frozen entertainment back to the capital city Jan. 19 and 20 for the seventh straight year.
Join more than 120,000 raucous fans and watch the action as some of the world’s best skaters race up to 49 miles per hour to try to ink their names in the Crashed Ice history books. Some of the contenders include Cameron Naasz, a Minnesota native who is gunning for a record-breaking third straight Ice Cross Downhill World Championship; Canada’s Jacqueline Legere, who is also looking to take home a third consecutive women’s championship; and former champion Kyle Croxall of Canada.
Spread over two days (qualifying races will take place on Friday and finals are on Saturday), 64 men will fight through five knock-out style rounds of four-man heats while 16 women compete in three rounds. All of the events will take place on the redesigned arena consisting of a 1,600-foot, man-made ice track filled with banked walls, hair-pin turns and a 12-story drop, all with the backdrop of a lit up Saint Paul Cathedral.
