Are you a fan of bobsled, but wish they would get rid of those annoying vehicles, and send multiple participants down the track at a time? Well, have we got a method of suicide for you!

Taking place tonight in beautiful and historic Old Quebec City is the latest installment of the "Red Bull Crashed Ice" competition. Organizers describe it as a combination of "hockey, downhill skiing and bordercross", but I prefer to think of it as "Human NASCAR". I could attempt to describe the subtle majesty of the sport, the thrill that accompanies travelling down a steep track of flawlessly groomed ice at fantastic speeds, the sweet satisfaction of hearing the "oohs" and "aahs" of tens of thousands of spectators made delirious with cold and sample-sized syrupy energy drink...but how about we just watch a video of people crashing?

I know what you're thinking. Yes, there is a women's division.
