    For the fourth year in a row, Red Bull Crashed Ice, a combination of
hockey, downhill skiing and boardercross, has brought high energy once again
to the historic district of Old Quebec. Only the country's most high octane
athletes from coast-to-coast have made it through to the championship, where
they will crash through a course riddled with massive vertical drops, jumps
and razor-sharp turns at jaw-dropping speeds of more than 50 km/h. The Red
Bull Crashed Ice 2009 championship is definitely a must see event!
