Calgarian wins Red Bull ice race

Calgarian Kerri-Anne Wallace conquered the icy streets of Quebec City last weekend, taking home the first-ever win for a woman at the Red Bull Crashed Ice competition.

Calgarian Kerri-Anne Wallace conquered the icy streets of Quebec City last weekend, taking home the first-ever win for a woman at the Red Bull Crashed Ice competition.

Wallace skated down Quebec City’s 550-metre man-made urban ice track, which featured a sequence of sharp turns, ice steps and gap jumps. This is the first year women have been allowed to compete.

“It feels phenomenal to be the first woman to win Red Bull Crashed Ice,” Wallace said. “It’s an honour, truly an honour. I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew it was going to be a full adrenaline rush and that’s the reason why I signed up. I didn’t expect to win. I’m absolutely coming back next year.”

Wallace wasn’t even supposed to compete in the final due to a knee injury she suffered during one of the qualifying rounds.

“No way am I missing this. Get the tape,” Wallace recalled saying.
