On February 8 and 9, Ice Cross Downhill skaters from all over the world will race down the massive Red Bull Crashed Ice track in Fenway Park - a course packed with drops, hairpin turns, and huge gaps. Two of these skaters, however, will be competing in the sport of Ice Cross Downhill for the very first time - and it could be you!
Open to male and female skaters 18 years or older, the Red Bull Crashed Ice Athlete search will consist of three pre-qualifiers: two in Boston (Dec. 2 & 9); one in Buffalo, NY (Dec. 14); and a final here at Loon on Jan. 12!
The Red Bull Crashed Ice Athlete Search pre-qualifiers are a timed competition where skaters will race around aseries of flat-ice obstacles aiming to record their fastest personal time. Each male and female competitor will race in heats and have two attempts at the course. The top eight male and female skaters per pre-qualifier will advance to the Red Bull Athlete Search Finals on Saturday, January 12. Interested athletes are only required to compete in one pre-qualifier. Competing athletes must wear shoulder pads, elbow pads, pants with plastic padding (hockey, motocross orinline), helmet, gloves and ice hockey skates.
*Registration is closed. All competitors have qualified at previous Red Bull Crashed Ice competitions*
Spectators: We will have a viewing area for nonskiing spectators near the course finish.
