The capital of Minnesota will host the first of four Red Bull Crashed Ice events on the frozen banks of the Mississippi River on January 19-20. For the past six freezing-cold winters, Saint Paul has hosted the Ice Cross Downhill competition, with huge crowds 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.
Cameron Naasz, a native of Minnesota, clinched the title here in 2016 before becoming the first men's back-to-back winner last season, and will be aiming for the perfect start to the season on home soil.
