Red Bull is notorious for sponsoring some of the world’s most intense action sports events. And this one is no different. Red Bull Crashed Ice features a winter competition that forces skaters to jump, dance, weave and sprint through an array of obstacles on a downhill course. The high-speed action takes place across the globe as the world championship tour travels through Finland, France, Canada and the States. For the seventh straight year, Red Bull Crashed Ice will return to Saint Paul, Minnesota for a two-day event at the end of January 2018.
The massive track features considerable drops, hairpin turns and open ice that can force skaters to reach up to 80 km/h. Each heat consists of four skaters competing for first place in a shoulder-to-shoulder content with one simple rule. The first one to the bottom wins. Championship points are on the line as hundreds of skaters yearn for the top spot as world champ by year’s end.
After experiencing the physically demanding, agility-packed race for the ages, the bustling town of St. Paul offers event-goers a post-championship celebration. The Crashed Ice Village on West 7th will feature the likes of live music, awesome food and flowing drinks.
