Crashed Ice Is The New Extreme Sport!

Ice skating doesn’t sound off the wall what soever.  Even speed skating makes sense.  But how about speed ice skating downhill?  While I would never do this to myself, a lot of people are getting into this new extreme sport! did a special report on the Crashed Ice event, and it really caught my eye.

The competition course weaves through Vieux Québec, creating a spectacular, surreal backdrop. Four cats dressed in hockey pads and helmets race each other down a winding 540-metres course filled with twists, turns, jumps and bumps. (This year’s course grows to 584 meters, with a 60-meter vertical drop!) It’s all a blur, making for killer video as skaters hit more than 70 km/hr.
