Red Bull Crashed Ice kicks off in Québec

QUEBEC, QC – November 29, 2015 – The USA’s Cameron Naasz clinched icy victory in last night’s 2015/2016 Ice Cross Downhill World Championship season opener in Quebec City, narrowly beating out Montreal’s Dean Moriarity who placed second, followed by Ontario’s Scott Croxall in third. In the biggest season and earliest series kick-off in history, fans poured into the heart of Old Quebec to celebrate the city hosting 10 years of Red Bull Crashed Ice events.

“It feels amazing to place second but I have my eye on winning the next one,” Moriarity reflects, “it also helps that my twin brother competes in Red Bull Crashed Ice, we really push each other to be better”.

Naasz, when asked about the first victory of the season, said “a World Championship win really means everything to me – it’s why I train so hard all year long, and this is a great start.”

Myriam Trepanier climbed the podium of tonight’s female contingent, kicking off the first-ever Women’s Ice Cross Downhill World Championship title run. In an all-Canadian women’s podium, Maxie Plante placed second, and Elaine Topolnisky placed third.

Tonight’s main event, the 37th Red Bull Crashed Ice since 2001, featured a spectacular 460-meter long track of man-made ice starting at the picturesque backdrop of the Parliament. Chock-full of scaffolding features and complete with a vertical drop of 60 meters, it twisted and turned through the city’s historical fortifications towards the finish line in Carré d’Youville. It took almost a full month to build and took over 8,000 hours to complete.
