ST. PAUL - Hockey players turned speed skaters are getting ready for another wild ride in St. Paul this weekend.

The 2nd annual Red Bull Crashed Ice event runs through Saturday night, with the World Championship finals starting at 7:00 p.m. Saturday in front of the St. Paul Cathedral.

Last year's event drew over 80,000 spectators.

One St. Cloud connection to the event is Cameron Naasz.  He finished 24th overall last year, and won the Rookie Award as the best newcomer.

Naasz is a St. Cloud State University Student.
