EDMONTON, Canada – With two Red Bull Crashed Ice victories, Scott Croxall was the dominant force this year and richly deserved the title as the world’s fastest man on skates. The 24-year-old from Toronto became the fifth different champion in the last five years of the increasingly competitive sport and sent the giant crowd of 70,000 in the heart of Edmonton into a frenzy with the Canada’s first title in the sport so close to their national identity since his older brother Kyle Croxall won it all in 2012.
With the third Red Bull Crashed Ice victory of his career, American Cameron Naasz jumped up to second place overall while Kyle Croxall, who won the Red Bull Crashed Ice season opener in Saint Paul, Minnesota, finished fourth overall.
“It feels great,” said Scott Croxall, who this year miraculously managed to overcome his finals jinx to win two of the three finals he was in after coming up empty-handed in a record-breaking 13 finals in his seven-year career. He also won one of the four Riders Cup races. “You’re wild Edmonton! Thanks for cheering me on. It’s amazing. I couldn’t be happier.”
