Canada’s Kyle Croxall won the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship in Quebec City in front of 100,000 spectators by grabbing second place behind Finland’s Arttu Pihlainen, helped to the title when his brother Scott crashed into a wall late in the race. It was the most dramatic Ice Cross Downhill World Championship in Red Bull Crashed Ice history with Pihlainen looking like he was headed for the title until the very end of the final race.
Championship leader Kyle Croxall needed to finish at least second to win the title but the Canadian firefighter was well behind his brother Scott in third place with time running out as the Finn streaked away from the pack. But Scott Croxall suddenly crashed into a wall after a tricky jump and fell to the ice, allowing Kyle Croxall to leapfrog him into second and give Canada its first world championship in the sport’s history.
