Garmin Teams up with Red Bull Crashed Ice, Belfast

Northern Ireland hosts its first Ice Cross Downhill race with a stop in Northern Ireland on February 20th and we’re going to be there!


Red Bull Crashed Ice is a world series in the winter extreme sporting event of ice cross downhill. It is a four man full-contact, high-speed, downhill ice skating race along a 440 metre track, with steep turns and vertical drops, reaching speeds of up to 60 km/h in a timed battle, where the first to the bottom wins. The energy and competitive spirit of Red Bull Crashed Ice makes for a breath-taking spectacle and a hugely entertaining event for all.

The event is going to Belfast for the first time, with the competition held in front of the dazzling white facade of the city’s iconic Parliament Buildings at Stormont.


Garmin is getting its own team and will be recording some of the action with VIRB cameras which are perfect for such a fast and furious sport! 

140 competitors will take part in the action-packed race on a heart-pumping assault course. 40,000 spectators are expected to attend over two days.
