EDMONTON, AB -SPORTS – Canada’s Scott Croxall is in the driver’s seat going into the 2015 Ice Cross Downhill World Championship showdown in Edmonton after he jumped into the overall lead ahead of his brother Kyle with emphatic victories in the last two major Red Bull Crashed Ice races in Helsinki and Belfast as well as winning the last Riders Cup event in Jyväskylâ. But the 2015 world championship battle is still far from settled with a total of five racers – including two former world champions – still in the title hunt of the world’s fastest sport on skates as it moves to its traditional finale in Canada.

After nine straight years in Quebec City, this season’s showdown competition will be held in the western city of Edmonton on a high-speed track with massive drops, gaps, steps and hairpin turns built in the city center.

Scott Croxall had a fantastic run on the European leg of the world championship with a maximum 2,000 points from the last two major Red Bull Crashed Ice races and 250 points for winning the Riders Cup stop in Jyväskylä, Finland that propelled him from ninth place into the overall lead with 2,765 points.
