Six Manitoba ice-cross skaters are headed to Quebec after posting the fastest times at the Crashed Ice World Championship 2012 Winnipeg qualifier at the Canlan Ice Sports facility last Saturday.
Derrick Gagnon put up the event’s top time of 24.02 seconds on the flat-surface time-trials. Also qualifying were Adam Farthing (24.13), Brian Schack (24.21), Jon Palmer (24.22) and Luke Stokotelny (24.50) and Kailey Wilson (27.03) in the women’s division.
The six skaters earned berths in the 2012 Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championship season finale on March 15-17 at Quebec City. That event will be held on an urban urban ice track with a 60 metre vertical at the start line.
