St. Paul's Red Bull Crashed Ice race to be longer


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Red Bull Crashed Ice race will feature a longer and higher track when the race returns to St. Paul in January.

The race returns to St. Paul for a second straight year on Jan. 24-26. The track will again start near the Cathedral of St. Paul and wind its way down the hill.

But Team USA Coach Charlie Wasley says this time, the track will start higher and run for more than 1,300 feet. That will allow skaters more room to recover on the course's many obstacles.

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman says last winter's event generated an estimated $20 million in economic activity for the city.

The Star Tribune ( reports the St. Paul race will be the only Red Bull Crashed Ice event in the U.S.
