Red Bull Crashed Ice sets the stage for unique Ice Cross Downhill action where it’s physical, it’s fast and the sportive format is easy to follow:
Four riders go down the track and the fastest two advance to the next round. Thousands of cheering fans are close to the action and witness the unique atmosphere of the most attractive and most visited/participated global winter sport. Red Bull Crashed Ice events are taking place at unusual locations with stunning backdrops. Ice Cross Downhill is the fastest sport on skates where athletes hurtle down a massive ice track filled with drops, hairpin turns, and gaps at speeds of up to 80km/h. World Championship points are up for grabs at each of the stops, and the competitor who skates through the season with the most points accumulated after the races will be crowned the 2016-2017 Ice Cross Downhill World Champion www.redbullcrashedice.com
The Riders Cup was created to make the sport of Ice Cross Downhill more accessible to more athletes (male/female) worldwide. The races are open to all comers and give athletes an introduction to the sport under competitive conditions. The Riders Cup races are also open to the top athletes of the sport as well, who can earn valuable world championship points. The Riders Cup champion will be crowned at the end of the season, and all official Riders Cup races count.
The results at official National Championship competitions count for the World Ranking.
