Red Bull - Ice Cross - Downhill - World Championship
Reigning World Champions Cameron Naasz and Amanda Trunzo will be the riders to beat this weekend in Percé, for the first of two ATSX races scheduled in the next three weeks in Québec, east of Canada. The track in Percé will host an ATSX 250 race at the very end of the Gaspé Peninsula, a few hours north-east of Québec City.
On a superb site where natural ice is guaranteed, due to the extreme location, the huge success of the 2019 edition, in ATSX 100 format, has led the global promoters of Ice Cross to raise the profile of the event to ATSX 250 status. With a direct consequence: in addition to dozens of Canadian riders lead by Kyle Croxall, several top guns have decided to travel from the US, starting with Naasz and Trunzo.
February will be very busy for Ice Cross athletes, since 4 other races are scheduled, after Percé: an ATSX 500 one week later in Rautalampi (Finland), followed by the first of two ATSX 1000 races in Yokohama (Japan), on Feb 15. Then, in order to close this month in style, there will be two more ATSX 500 races on February 22: a brand new one at Le Massif de Charlevoix, a bit closer (than Percé) to Québec City, and now a classic one in Igora (Russia), on a superb track close to Saint Petersburg.
