Sunday night, 22 competitors (ranging from 16-46 years old) tried out the Red Bull Crashed Ice course at the Affton Ice Arena for a chance to advance to the US National finals January 12-14 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Everyone had the chance to complete the obstacle course twice, usually racing someone else (the exception being an odd-man-out scenario). The slightly rearranged final course had four competitors race at once for the final slot. Photos by Kholood Eid
