Red Bull Crashed Ice FAQ

Get all your questions about the athletes and the event answered here.

WHAT IS RED BULL CRASHED ICE?

The sport is Ice Cross Downhill; Red Bull Crashed Ice is the series. It is a combination of hockey, boarder-cross, and downhill skiing. Known to many as the fastest sport on skates, but dictated by one goal: first to the bottom wins. It’s challenging, fast, cold, hard, unique and action packed. Skaters hurtle down a steep ice canal four-at-a-time through challenging obstacles at speeds of more than 40mph (60km/h), jostling for a position. With only two riders going through to the next round, the competition is fierce.

ARE THERE POINTS?

Points are awarded at each Red Bull Crashed Ice – Ice Cross Downhill World Championship event; from 1,000 points, for 1st place, down to 0.5 points, for 100th place. Points are also awarded during the five Rider’s Cup Events happening throughout the season, at 25% of the Red Bull Crashed Ice tour stops. The winner of a Rider’s Cup event will earn 250 points, down to 11.25 points if you come in 50th place. The best three scores of an athlete’s Red Bull Crashed Ice points and their best three scores of Rider’s Cup points will determine their overall season ranking. The athlete with the highest amount of points at the end of the season will become the World Champion.

WHAT’S THE RIDER’S CUP?

The Rider's Cup competition is designed to make the sport of Ice Cross Downhill more accessible to even more athletes worldwide. Athletes are also able to earn World Championship points at these events – up to 25% of the points awarded at the four major Red Bull Crashed Ice stops.
