A winter staple in St. Paul will not be returning to Minnesota's capital city next year.

A St. Paul Parks and Recreation spokesperson confirmed Red Bull Crashed Ice will not be making a stop in St. Paul in 2019.


"It was incredible to host Red Bull Crashed Ice in Saint Paul," Clare Cloyd said. "They were a great partner, and though there are not plans for the event to return in 2019, we look forward to the opportunity to work with them again in the future."

On the Crashed Ice website, the skating event lists three stops - Japan in December and Finland and Boston in February 2018.

Red Bull released the following statement:

"The 2018 / 2019 Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championship will travel to Yokohama, Japan, Jyväskylä, Finland and Boston, Massachusetts. We look forward to bringing the sport of Ice Cross Downhill to two new markets."

St. Paul first hosted the event in 2011.

At this year's event, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter braved the 1,600-foot course, which wound from the St. Paul Cathedral into downtown. It was his seventh time skating the course, but his first as mayor.
