Red Bull Crashed Ice 2009 Quebec City
General Sports

This Is Possibly The Best Idea For A Sport In Human History

I don't know how many Canadians we have on this site, eh, but I'm sure they're already well aware of this. Tonight in Quebec City we'll get a chance to see another edition of Red Bull Crashed Ice.

What exactly is Red Bull Crashed Ice? The newest popular club drink? Or some kind of sport for psychos? If you guessed the second, you'd be correct. Organizers describe the sport - which has actually been around since at least 2005 - as a combination of "hockey, downhill skiing and bordercross." Think of it like human luge combined with epic NASCAR crashes.

So, in other words, it's freakin' awesome.

I don't even want to know what the injury rate of this sport is (1200%?) or think about how someone is eventually going to get their head cut off by a rogue skate, so let's just go right to what you came here for - ridiculous high speed crashes.



Hey, I've got to have something replace football for this weekend. Might as well be this.

The Ladies champ comes from just a couple hundred miles from where I live.  She should have competed with the guys, she is so much more dominant than the rest of the "ladies".  BTW temp was -33 and it was outdoors

Cabin fever mixed with alcohol will induce some pretty insane ideas!

 Totally Awesome, and extremely entertaining ! Would love to see more of this on Television. These Guys are made of steel backbone and  lots of hard knocks!!!! This will be an all over sport when people find out about it...as for me, I will just have to watch and enjoy  !!!  Keep up the good awesome work Guys, three cheers for your courage !!!!

I'm with ya on this one!  That is awesome!    Think they might need to perfect some new equipment for this one?  I know I'd be covered in pillows *giggle*  Hey who is carrying this (network) and when is it on.... ya suppose they cover it w/dish tv in Alaska no less??  I bet that sport would be big up here, and they could do it outside and set records for temperatures.  Maybe if they put springs in their pants it would increase the speed of fall recovery?  Down ya go, boing back up and on around the corner!  It's those lil rumble strips that would kill ya, I think!

Nice.....They need to put this on TV and have weekly bouts.  Just watching the guy fly over the junps on his rear was priceless.  I almost fell out of my chair watching.

 oh c'mon! that's like trying to get a seat on the train everyday...except with ice. If they added some chasing wolves I'd be tempted to watch

Yeah before to gain the courage, during to dull the pain , and after to clean the wounds.

For all us Canadians out there, it is on TSN HD at 6:30 MST.  Hell ya, I'm gonna watch!

How about the same concept, but no pads and they try racing down the ice on skateboards?  And someone is definitely going to get seriously hurt in this sport

Hell yes! I'll but the DirecTV package for that right now!

1/24/09   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3292 respect

Not gonna lie, I really wanna watch that..
