Red Bull Crashed Ice coming back to Quebec City

Red Bull Crashed Ice coming back to Quebec City

Red Bull Crashed Ice is back with a vengeance – why did it ever leave?

Quebec City (Quebec) 13 July 2015 – After an interruption of only one year, the sport of racing down a hill on skates is back, in Quebec City. Mayor Labeaume and the president of Gestev, Patrice Drouin made the announcement last Friday, July 10 at City Hall. Gestev is the company who administers the event and the Crashed Ice is the largest project they manage.

The budget for the presentation and installations is fixed at $6 million but the city and Gestev expect the economic fallout to amount to $10 million for the city and the surrounding commerce. Both the mayor and M. Drouin regard the exposure for the city on the international scene as “priceless”, which can only lead to future interest from tourists around the world.

The layout for the competition will be one of the two already used in the past, either Côte de la Montagne or in front of the parliament buildings.

Last year’s finale was moved to Edmonton for the month of March and next season’s appearance in Quebec City will most likely be in January or February when things are quieter in the city.

The two men were excited and pleased to have their city once again included in Red Bull’s Crashed Ice event reiterating that the city offers a lot to the competitors as well as the organizers of the event who hail from Austria.
