|2012 ICE CROSS DOWNHILL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FINALE CARVES INTO NBC|
|Hosted by Sal Masekela, Crashed Ice airs on Saturday, April 21 at 2 pm ET/11 am PT|
|New York, April 18, 2012 – With four athletes still in the running for the 2012 Ice Cross Downhill World Championship, the season finale in Quebec City promises to be the most exciting race ever. Racers will wind their way from the iconic Chateau Frontenac overlooking the old town to the icy currents of the Saint Lawrence River at Place de Paris.
As part of the Red Bull Signature Series, fans watching NBC’s stunning one-hour Crashed Ice finale on Saturday, April 21 at 2 pm ET/11 am PT will see 100,000 frenzied spectators jammed into the old town of Quebec City to see the mother of all tracks – 584 meters of twists, turns, jumps, bumps and a mind-boggling assortment of obstacles.
Kyle Croxall goes into the finale leading the world championship, but there are three challengers breathing down his neck and capable of ending up on top if the Canadian firefighter stumbles on home ice in front of the biggest crowd of the year. With 1,000 points up for grabs in Quebec City for the winner, the 2012 Red Bull Crashed Ice World Champion could be any one of four athletes: Kyle Croxall (2200 points), Finland’s Arttu Pihlainen (1960), or Canada’s Scott Croxall (1700) and Adam Horst (1690).
“There are quite a few guys who can do really well so anything can happen,” said Kyle Croxall, hungry for the title after getting 2nd in 2010 and 2011.
