The capital of Minnesota will host the season finale on the frozen banks of the Mississippi River on February 26-27, 2016. For the past four freezing-cold winters, Saint Paul has hosted the ice cross downhill competition, with a huge crowd of more than 100,000 people converging under the gaze of the imposing Cathedral of Saint Paul to witness the high-speed action that features skaters competing in four-man heats in a race to the bottom of a long ice track filled with obstacles. The sport appeals to what Americans like most in sports – a physically challenging, rough, tough sport coupled with high-speed action and agility. With local hero Cameron Naasz (2nd overall), a native of Minnesota, having pushed the boundaries of the sport and almost clinched the title in 2014 and 2015, it promises to be another year of fierce competition.
