The action moved to Finland for the second Red Bull Crashed Ice stop of the season

Scott Croxall of Canada was the undisputed master of a difficult natural ice track in frigid Finland, winning the second Red Bull Crashed Ice of the season to throw the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship into a tense three-way battle with Americans Maxwell Dunne and Cameron Naasz, who finished second and third respectively. In the women's competition it was USA's Amanda Trunzo who powered to a first-ever win, with Camilla Ojapalo of Finland in second and France's Sandrine Rangeon in third.

The race in Finland will be the only major stop on a natural ice track, The riders will have to adjust to the small – but important – differences of racing on the natural ice after the season opener was held on an artificial ice track built in Marseille. In general, natural ice tracks tend to be bumpier and invariably more challenging with a greater variation of the ice conditions from the start high up on the mountains to finish lines down in the valleys than the more perfect and consistent ice conditions throughout created by cooling systems that are buried beneath the artificial ice tracks.
