ST. PAUL, Minn. - It's the event where the extreme and the cold collide.

Red Bull's Crashed Ice took over downtown St. Paul Saturday night drawing 115,000 winter enthusiasts.

"I'm out here supporting my friend who's competing," shouted Tyler Jenson from Minneapolis. "I'll probably lose my voice by the end of the night!"

The event provides an economic boost, too.

"Last year, 20 million dollars was brought in because of Crashed Ice," says St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman. "We have a good partnership with Red Bull and as long as they have crazy ideas, we're willing to try them out."

Canadian brothers Kyle Croxall and Scottie Croxall took first and second respectively. Lakeville, Minnesota native Cameron Naasz took third.

This year's course was considered the most technical ice track Red Bull has ever constructed.
