SAVE THE DATE! Red Bull Crashed Ice

One more reason to love Red Bull…  They come up with the most incredible events!  Red Bull Crashed Ice sounds like a heck of a lot of fun to attend.

On a man-made ice track made for head-to-head battle, the definitive, most stunning ice cross downhill world championship comes to the winter wonderland of Saint Paul, Minnesota January 12-14, 2012. The 100 toughest, fastest ice cross downhill racers from around the world will go head-to-head, four-at-a-time through an unforgiving, gritty, freezing downhill course full of mind-and-body-bending twists, turns, canals and chutes — all against the backdrop of the strikingly iconic Cathedral of Saint Paul with thousands of spectators bearing witness.

With four athletes duking it out shoulder-to-shoulder down an intimidating and treacherous icicle in full ice cross downhill gear, the combatants will race up to 40 miles an hour down steep ice canals dotted with jumps, rollers, obstacles, banked corners and hairpin bends — until the first two cross the finish line and advance to the next round. This bracketed madness will continue until the final chapter, when the four remaining competitors race to the bottom to crown the champ. Speed, agility, perseverance, toughness and courage are the ingredients needed for success.
