The Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championship makes its way to Saint Paul, Minnesota, for the third year in a row on February 20-22 as one of four stops around the world. Two hundred of the toughest, fastest, ice cross downhill racers will go head-to-head through a downhill course full of mind-and-body-bending jumps, turns and slides – all against the backdrop of the historic Cathedral of Saint Paul with thousands of spectators bearing witness.
After the visit of the World Championship here in 2013, this year's track promises to be one of the most difficult in the series, with a number of changes expected for the course. With record crowds expected to come and root for Team USA, this year's stop in Saint Paul will be one not to be missed. Make your plans to visit Saint Paul now!
