Crashed Ice, Landgraaf // Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championship 2013

Published by Christine Blachford

The Crashed Ice phenomenon is back on our screens in super quick time and with a unique challenge in store. For the first time, the event heads indoors to the SnowWorld course in the Netherlands. Already it has thrown up some surprises in terms of who has made it through to the finals and who has not. The different style of course has been hard for some to adapt to, so this should be one not to miss!




  • So, spoiler alert, but if Kyle is out already... this must be Scotty's big chance!

  • When does it go on till? Turns out the best timed event of them all might be out of my reach.

    It's hard to say, because it depends how much other stuff they put in between. Usually a couple of hours.

  • New PC arrived and is all set up with Chrome downloaded so I'm ready to go when they are ;)

  • Yeah, it's because I'm also watching rugby in the front room.

    I've got that on as well, it doesn't seem to be a very good game but I'm not paying a lot of attention to it.

    I'm also listening to a podcast.

    I can too multitask.

    2nd March at Lausanne then 16th March in Quebec

  • 2nd March at Lausanne then 16th March in Quebec

    Well, so much for sleeping the weekend of the 16th with the race the same morning :)

  • 2nd March at Lausanne then 16th March in Quebec

    Thanks. Lausanne is the day after Joe in London so I'll likely still be travelling home. :( I like to make the most of going up there because of the cost so I'm planning to spend most of Saturday there.

    Quebec is during Sebring but surely will take a break for the final of this. :)

  • Quebec is during Sebring but surely will take a break for the final of this. :)

    Actually it might be during the finish of Sebring..

  • Christine, I just sent an email..

  • If my calculations are correct (don't bank on it) Crashed Ice starts at midnight 16/17 March and the GP starts at 6:00am with Sebring starting at 15:30 16th & ending at 03:30am. No sleep then!

    Sounds about right! Ouch. 3hrs sleep then back to bed after the GP..

  • Thanks. Lausanne is the day after Joe in London so I'll likely still be travelling home. :( I like to make the most of going up there because of the cost so I'm planning to spend most of Saturday there.

    oh bugger, is it? london exhausts me, duvet day w/crashed ice saturday then.

  • Christine, I just sent an email..

    Done: sidepodcast.com/e…durance-race-2013

  • Just remembered that I missed Crashed Ice so I thought a quick check would tell me which of the regulars won. Not quite the results I was expecting. When Niefy lasts longer than both Croxalls something weird is happening

  • Jimi Hendrix is getting around. He made the final or the semi final of the darts world championship a few weeks ago
