Red Bull Frozen Rush recently provided an interesting new twist to snowsports by bringing a head-to-head off-road race to the ski slopes.
Eight 900-horsepower Pro4 trucks defied the wintery conditions to rip figure eights, fly off jumps and climb snowy inclines at the Sunday River Resort in Maine, USA. Eight drivers tested their skills on uncharted territory in search of a mountain champ.
A few hours from Boston, skiers and snowboarders shared the contours of Sunday River’s South Ridge with 4×4 trucks blazing the trails and dodging slalom gates. The race format was a bracketed, single elimination format with two drivers on course at a time.
The event provided all the insanity and mayhem this sort race promised, with trucks flying through the air like snowboarders. You can watch a video of the event below.
