OTTAWA SET TO THRILL IN 2017 WITH RED BULL CRASHED ICE
Ice cross downhill is the fastest sport on skates. Take some of the best and toughest skaters in the world, a sizzling atmosphere, stunning surroundings, and thousands of square metres of frozen water. The result? Red Bull Crashed Ice! Athletes skate down a massive ice track filled with drops, hairpin turns, and gaps at speeds of more than 50 km/h.
Imagine the world’s best athletes competing for the ultimate title during the final showdown on the iconic locks of the Rideau Canal, overlooking Parliament Hill and the famous Chateau Laurier. Will Canadian favourite Scott Croxall reclaim his title on top of the podium?
