Crashed Ice (Red Bull Crashed Ice) is a world tour in the winter extreme sporting event (or downhill ice cross), which involves downhill skating in an urban environment, on a track which includes steep turns and high vertical drops. It is sponsored by Red Bull. It is similar to ski cross and snowboard cross, except with ice skates on an ice track, instead of skis or snowboards on a snow track.Competitors, having advanced from one of the tryouts in the prior months, race in heats of four skaters, with the top two advancing from each heat. Racers, typically ice hockey players, outfitted as such, speed down the course’s turns, berms, and jumps.
Derrell Levy of In-Tech hockey is a Gitch sponsored Red Bull Crashed Ice competitor. With the addition of Gitch performance enhancing products Derrel has improved his times by 8+ seconds per run from last season. Armed with GItch compression socks, compression pants, and a Bio-Core shirt, Derrell had his best showing at the latest competition In Minnesota. The grueling schedule of qualifying and running many heats in a day can take its toll on the body. Derrell attributes his quick recovery and improved performance to the Gitch products he religiously wears on every run down the extreme track. “Without the Gitch performance line I would not have been able to improve and compete at such a high level” This is a great testament to what the Gitch line has been made for. Improved performance, faster recovery, comfort, and enduring quality that allows athletes to be their best and perform their best. #SEEYABOYS
