2015/16 will be Cameron Naasz's 5th season competing in Red Bull Crashed Ice, and he finished second overall in 2015. Cameron grew up in Lakeville, Minnesota, and attended Saint Cloud State University to graduate in public relations. His mother owned a skate shop and at the young age of five, Naasz started playing hockey. He continued playing at a competitive level and ended up playing for Junior Gold Hockey, which was for skaters that didn't make their high school team, and winning the 2008 state championship. For the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship stop in Saint Paul in 2013, Cameron was offered a prospect pass and a spot on the start list. Cameron said he was a little hesitant at first since he hadn't been skating on a regular basis, but showed up on that Thursday for a time trial, and hasn't looked back since. No one will ever be able to take away the feeling of being the first American to win an event, as he did in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2013. Having finished in 2nd place overall in 2015 behind Scott Croxall, he will be aiming to go one better this season.
2015/16 target: "I expect to become the next world champion, why else would I compete."
