Sports fans: what are you watching saturday night? a new era on skates vs. skills and drills

    MONTREAL, Jan. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - While hockey's all-stars are skating in
circles and taking slap shots at Styrofoam targets down in Atlanta, Georgia on
Jan. 26, one hundred of the sport's grittiest competitors will be carving in a
new era on skates as they hurtle down a twisting, jumping 535m urban ice-track
at speeds of over 50km through the streets of Old Quebec! Never heard anything
like it? Wait 'til you see it. On Saturday January 26th at 9:00pm EST, TVA,
TVA HD, TSN and TSN HD will broadcast the Red Bull Crashed Ice 2008 finals
LIVE from Quebec City!
    Red Bull Crashed Ice, a combination of hockey, downhill skiing, and
bordercross, will take over the historic district of Old Quebec for the third
year in a row. Instead of a traditional flat-surface ice rink, hockey players
and action-sports enthusiasts from across Canada will race down a twisting
course riddled with massive vertical drops, razor-sharp turns, big-air jumps
and ice steps built within Canada's steepest streets - all while battling
three other skaters.
    Fueling their pace will be over 75,000 roaring spectators, a pair of
skates, gravity and one simple goal: first to the bottom wins.

    So...what will you be watching?

    What:  Red Bull Crashed Ice 2008 Finals
    When:  Saturday, January 26th @ 9:00 p.m. EST
    Where: On your TV!  Tune into TVA, TVA HD, TSN and TSN HD
