Interview Advisory: London's Top Adrenalin Junkies Compete in Red Bull Crashed Ice Finals

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 22, 2008) - Ever wondered who has enough of an adrenalin craving to race down a 535 m urban ice track that twists through Canada's steepest streets with nothing but a pair of skates, gravity and 75,000 roaring spectators fueling their pace!?!? Now's your chance to find out! London's quickest, sharpest and most aggressive will travel to Quebec City to compete against the best from across the country to become the Red Bull Crashed Ice champion.

Red Bull Crashed Ice, a combination of hockey, downhill skiing, and boardercross, will take over the historic district of Old Quebec for the third year in a row. Hockey players and action-sports enthusiasts from coast-to-coast will have the chance to race through Quebec City, in consecutive heats of four skaters, racing head-to-head in a double elimination bracket, narrowing the field down from 64 to a final four, on a course riddled with massive vertical drops, razor-sharp turns, jumps and steps.

Get up close and personal with London's competitors to talk about what it takes to make it to the finals, how they've prepared and find out what they anticipate for Quebec City. Do they have the attitude and energy to beat defending champion Kevin Olson (also winner of Red Bull Crashed Ice Helsinki)? Book an interview and find out!
