Crashed Ice

| February 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

The top 100 U.S. skaters and the top 100-ranked international skaters raced four at a time until there was only one winner. Austrian Marco Dallago came out ahead with last year’s winner Canadian Scott Croxall in second and Lakeville native Cameron Naasz in third. Moscow, Russia, hosts the next stop of the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship on March 8.
