Live Streaming the Build of Red Bull Crashed Ice's Most Technical Track of the Season

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 13, 2015) - Longer, steeper - faster? Edmonton will be home to the most technical track on the current Red Bull Crashed Ice tour, and the Shaw Conference Centre is offering a behind the scenes look at the building of the elaborate track that will snake its way around the downtown convention centre via a live stream at ShawConferenceCentre.com.

Construction has begun on the track around the convention centre - the first time that the outside of the Shaw Conference Centre building is being activated for an event. The live stream will capture the work taking place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. The track will connect Jasper Avenue with our city's river valley, specifically Louise McKinney Park, in a stunning display of Edmonton's potential as a winter city.

Once the event begins on March 14th the live stream will go dark, signaling to viewers that they should join thousands of others to see the track brought to life by Red Bull's athletes.

The building of the track will cause some traffic, parking and park access disruption prior to and during the event. Details can be found at Edmonton.ca.
