far from the accomplishments recorded by their north american and scandinavian counterparts however the leader of team russia and de la brive who finished in eighth place at last winter's events in the russian capital has become an integral part of the crushed ice family permanently placing the athletes from his native plants on the international ice cross downhill last year we. were world championship stopping here in moscow and the russian guys proved that they're really good on the skates but most of. the skates and in the final part of competition. sixty four it's down twenty four. guys it's a good result only canadian guys showed a bit of a better score andrea lavrov will be joined by another four skaters of the upcoming crushed ice world championships they were among the twenty one regional russian champions who fought for a place on the national team in moscow for some of these guys it's not only
a unique chance to represent their country but also to travel to places their friends can only dream about they were strong enough to stay on ice to fight for their to be the first they're welcome and they're of course over the pleasure of their comic they're fighting for the beach here as a national hero calls to get a chance so surf around the world of all the five stops i mean not a suite on the lawns in the world stops and maybe to be the girls there. so the first stop for these russian daredevils will be the united states with the opening stage of the red bull crashed ice event taking place in january in minnesota this skaters will then move on to the netherlands followed by sweden the country where this sport originated and it will all culminate in march with the final race in canada's quebec which is considered the mecca of ice cross downhill so these are the guys who will represent russia the world crashed ice championships and next
