Cameron Naasz Reaches Podium In Thrilling Saint Paul Finale

About Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championship Series

Built into urban areas with tons of steel, huge cooling systems and thousands of square feet of frozen water, this one-of-a-kind series combines American football, ice hockey, downhill skating and boarder-cross where a gritty downhill chute on ice will be the stage in front of hundreds of thousands of spectators for the five-stop global championship, which along with Saint Paul, MN, includes spectacular courses in Canada, Switzerland, and Russia with the finale going back to Quebec, Canada. 

Points are up for grabs at each of the five stops of the Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championship: the winner collects 1,000 points and competitors all the way down to 100th (0.5 point) can collect valuable points. Whoever finishes the season with the most points after the five races is crowned champion. 

In 2012, there were four races around the globe – Sweden, The Netherlands, The United States and Quebec, Canada – many in sub-zero conditions.  Athletes from 30 nations attempted to qualify and take the stage in front of hundreds of thousands of spectators who watched the four races.

There have been a total of 24 races since the first Red Bull Crashed Ice race in Stockholm, Sweden in 2001.  In fact, two of these events happened in Duluth, MN in 2003 and 2004.  It has grown into a World Championship phenomenon - a two-race series in 2010 ( Munich and Quebec) where Germany's Martin Niefecker claimed the inaugural title.  The series has expanded to five global stops across North America and Europe.
