Red hot title fight as Red Bull Crashed Ice returns to Marseille

13.02.2018: Red Bull Crashed Ice - France - Marseille - Ice Cross Downhill Austria’s Marco Dallago will be looking to hold onto his Ice Cross Downhill World Championship

Red Bull Crashed Ice - France - Marseille - Ice Cross Downhill




Austria’s Marco Dallago will be looking to hold onto his Ice Cross Downhill World Championship lead as the title battles heat up at the third Red Bull Crashed Ice race of the season in Marseille, France. American Amanda Trunzo could clinch the women’s championship with a victory, or even a podium finish, while Finland’s Mirko Lahti could be crowned Junior World Champion for a second straight year with a win.



Red Bull Crashed Ice returns to Marseille on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea after races in frosty Finland on Feb. 16-17 as the world’s best Ice Cross Downhill racers battle it out championship points.




With six different winners in the first six Ice Cross Downhill World Championship races, this year’s title fight has turned into an epic battle as the second half of the season gets into full swing at the third of four Red Bull Crashed Ice races.



 Austria’s Marco Dallago (1,855 points) is clinging to a melting lead atop the standings as Scott Croxall (1,600 points) of Canada and defending champion Cameron Naasz (1,100 points) of the United States both got on the podium in last week’s star-studded Riders Cup race in Saariselka, Finland.




There are nine other riders from six countries within striking range of Dallago heading into the Red Bull Crashed Ice race in Marseille, where the field of contenders could be whittled down to a handful. The top seven are all within 1,000 points of each other.



It’s a completely different story in the women’s championship, where American Amanda Trunzo will be looking to clinch the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship after winning the first two Red Bull Crashed Ice races in Saint Paul, Minnesota and Jyväskylä, Finland. Trunzo (2,000 points) is holding a comfortable lead over Canada’s Myriam Trepanier (1,300 points) in second place and Jacqueline Legere, the two-time women’s champion, (1,090 points) in third place.




 Trunzo, who was also in the overall lead at the midway point last season before slumping, will be eager to gain revenge on Legere, who beat her in Marseille last year en route to her second straight title.  A win for the American would guarantee her the title, and even a second or third place could be enough depending on how others finish.




In the Junior World Championship, titleholder Lahti of Finland will be looking to extend his winning streak to six straight races and could also clinch the championship in the penultimate race of the season. With 2,000 points, Lahti has been unstoppable this season and holds a 700-point lead over Jesse Sauren (FIN) in second place and a 1,040-point lead over Joni Saarinen (FIN) in third place.
