Cameron Naasz Reaches Podium In Thrilling Saint Paul Finale

The comeback story of the night was Adam Green, who took Saint Paul by storm as he powered his way through the first two rounds and into the quarterfinals. The Ohio native was the fastest qualifier in Saint Paul last time around, but has been in and out of competition the past few years. With a dominant run on Saturday, he reminded fans of Ice Cross Downhill of his potential to be one of the top athletes in the sport.

"I was really proud of our guys overall," said Charlie Wasley, coach of Team USA. "Cam was even better than most people know – he was pretty banged up by the last race and still had a real shot to take it all. It was great to see him on the podium, but he has the potential to win races, if not the series. This night is going to elevate the confidence of our athletes, and I really feel we're closer than ever to a win."

Fans can relive all the edge-of-your-seat action on February 16 when the Saint Paul race airs as part of the Red Bull Signature Series. The Red Bull Signature Series is the most progressive and innovative action sports property in the world, featuring events such as snowboarding, mountain biking, freestyle motocross, ice cross downhill, skiing, and BMX.

About Red Bull Crashed Ice - Ice Cross Downhill World Championship

The world's fastest ice cross downhill athletes came back to Saint Paul to compete in the toughest competition on ice: Red Bull Crashed Ice. Athletes went four-at-a-time through a demanding, gritty, glacial downhill course full of turns, canals and chutes – all against the backdrop of the iconic Cathedral of Saint Paul. Back in the land of 10,000 lakes for the second time, this year's man-made ice track has been specifically designed for head-to-head battle, and was once again the most technically challenging course this season. The action returned to the U.S. on January 24-26, 2013 as the second stop on this year's World Championship tour.

With four athletes duking it out shoulder-to-shoulder down an intimidating and treacherous icicle in full ice cross downhill gear, the combatants raced up to 40 miles an hour down steep ice canals dotted with jumps, rollers, obstacles, banked corners and hairpin bends – until the first two crossed the finish line and advanced to the next round. This bracketed madness continued until the final chapter when the four remaining competitors raced to the bottom to crown the champ.
