Parliament Buildings, Stormont, Belfast, Co
Antrim Down today.
In preparation for this weekend’s third Red Bull Crashed Ice [hurtling on ice skates] event of the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship.
Tougher than the peace process.

It starts in front of Stormont Buildings and passes right next to the 12-foot high statue of Lord Carson. Along the way down the hill there are five tough turns and two big bridges – the parliament bridge and Carson bridge. One of the most irresistible features of the Belfast track is a scintillating U-turn wall ride right before the 100 international and 40 national athletes in the competition make a mad dash to the finish line….
Take that, Cú Chulainn.
