Red Bull Crashed Ice is on a mission to find Canada’s most daring athletes to take on this extreme ice cross downhill challenge. From September 4th until September 30th, fearless male and female athletes from across the country are invited to register online for their chance to participate in one of the 12 qualifying events that will take place across Canada in October. Check out the video to see if you have what it takes?
NEW THIS YEAR: Even though there are two Canadian stops, athletes will only have one chance to compete in the 2013 world championship, with one registration process and one round of qualifiers for both Canadian stops.
A lottery will randomly select 200 men and 20 women (per qualifying city) to participate in each qualifying event, which consists of individual speed trials on a traditional ice-hockey surface. Red Bull Crashed Ice will also allow 50 walk-up spots per qualifying city (as time permits and registration allows). The 50 walk-ups (first come, first serve) will join the 200 men and 20 women selected via the lottery eligible to take part in the qualifiers as they all vie to skate into Niagara Falls.
The top participants from each qualifier (100 men and 20 women in total) who demonstrate the best speed, skill, agility, and strength will earn a spot to battle to the bottom of the massive ice course in Niagara Falls, ON. After the race in Niagara Falls on December 1st, the top 64 Canadian men and 16 women will earn their spot for the season finale race in Quebec City.
This is a once in a lifetime event. Don’t miss out!
