In 2016/17 there will be a brand new addition to Red Bull Crashed Ice, with a Junior World Championship replacing the team competitions on Friday evenings. The idea behind this is to give aspiring young Ice Cross Downhill athletes a chance to compete, develop and gain valuable experience on the major tracks, whilst also attracting new young blood into the sport.
There will be a Junior event at each ot the four Red Bull Crashed Ice stops this season, with large crowds expected to turn out and cheer the youngsters on as both male and female athletes battle each other down the magnificent and testing tracks.
Junior competitors must be aged from 16 years old up to 21 years old (exclude) before July 1st 2016, and the best two results from Junior Red Bull Crashed Ice races will be compiled to crown the 2016/2017 World Champion. Juniors can also decide to participate in both categories, Junior and Regular World Championship, in the same weekend.
Check back here throughout the season for all the latest news, images and video clips from the Junior World Championship.
