Fort St. John's Adam Horst wins Crashed Ice event in Sweden

"It’s something that you want from the very first time you enter a race," said Horst. "To win… I really don’t know what to say! My first race was in Quebec in 2008… it’s something that I have hoped for for many years!"

In Red Bull Crashed Ice, skaters descend a steep ice canal filled with bumps, jumps, rollers and obstacles four-at-a-time, jostling for position as they reach speeds of up to 70kph.

Horst current sits in fourth position in the race for the 2012 championship.  The next and final stop in the 2012 Ice Cross Downhill World Championship is Quebec City, Canada, on March 15-17.
