Red Bull Crashed Ice is returning to St. Paul Jan. 24–26, 2013, but if you think you have what it takes to race down the most technical track in ice cross downhill history, you’ll want to be at the Xcel Center on Sunday. Athletes wishing to qualify for Red Bull Crashed Ice–Saint Paul—as Fridley's Clint Massey did last year—must battle one-on-one in a time trial for the opportunity to earn a spot on Team USA. The time trial is Sunday, Jan. 6 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The morning session begins at 9 a.m. The afternoon session starts at 3 p.m. RELATED: PHOTOS: Fridley's Clint Massey at 2012 Crashed Ice Red Bull Crashed Ice is expanding to five stops worldwide this year.

It's not for everyone, but the Crashed Ice downhill skating course drew at least one person from Fridley: Clint Massey.

The Fridley City Council voted Monday to leave a water-management organization that the city has belonged to—with five other cities—since 1983. Blaine and Coon Rapids have already opted to leave the Six Cities Water Management Organization, Public Works Director James Kosluchar said. "They don't see it as functional," he told the council. That leaves the Six Cities organization with only four cities, despite its name: besides Fridley, are Columbia Heights, Spring Lake Park and Hilltop. Kosluchar said that Six Cities was coming under pressure from the state Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR, or "Bowser") to improve its state-mandated management of water resources.
