Red Bull takes us inside the crazy sport of ice cross in this exhilarating documentary.
For those who aren’t up on the latest trends in extreme winter sports, ice cross involves 4 ice skaters whizzing around a small track. They have to make it over jumps, slide round super tight corners and generally try not severely injure themselves, all whilst travelling at around 50 miles per hour. It’s known for being one of the most brutal winter sports out there and is super high stakes.
We get to hear how some of the athletes first got involved in ice cross. As it’s a relatively young sport, many people came into it through playing hockey or through roller blading. It’s a hard thing to train for, as there are no permanent courses. In fact, on race day the course can even end up getting chipped and cracked, which adds another level of unpredictability to proceedings. Do you think you’d want to try out ice cross for yourself? It looks like a tough time, but could be a lot of fun. Why not get your skates on and jump in…
