    This new action sport is crazy!



    If you haven't seen ice cross downhill before, you have to check this out. This sport is crazy to see in person and if you ever get the chance to, I highly recommend it!

    Thread looks spammy.

    Watched the vid and WOW!! I was an inovator back in the '70s and didn't know it. I used to lace up my hockey skates and skate the neighborhood when we'd get an ice layer of a half inch or more. Tricky to slow for some of the corners as some barbed wire fences reminded me.

    Yeah it was crazy in Saint Paul this year. Over 140,000 people attended. It was fairly warm this time around, like 35 degrees!

    It's not really that new. Originated in Europe . Quebec City held the 2014 crashed ice finale. Crazy sport! I think Brett Tippie doing is this year commentary
