An extreme sport sometimes described as "downhill ice cross" is coming to the St. Paul Cathedral in January. Athletes competing in "Crashed Ice" skate down a specially designed ramp of ice at high-speed while navigating jumps and banked turns.
The Catholic Spirit says the three-day event is expected to draw tens of thousands of people every day. Local authorities are working with Red Bull to minimize the impact on church-goers, businesses and residents.
