After three amazing initial rounds, Crashed Ice reaches the final, the pinnacle of the calendar in Québec, Canada. In 2010, Martin Neifnecker was crowned champion here, but he's already out of the running, allowing new challengers to compete. It's fast and furious, and soon to be over, so make the most of the final Crashed Ice of the 2011 season.

Claudio Caluori, Fabian Mels, Ghyslain Hotte and Kilian Braun during qualifying in Canada.

In previous rounds, we've seen the fast Finn Arttu Pihlainen absolutely dominate out of the gates, leading almost every single race he competes in. The Canadian brothers Kyle and Scott Croxall remained in contention, however Scott has fallen far behind thanks to a couple of controversial incidents. He's been disqualified from no less than two races at two different events, allowing his brother to streak ahead.

You'd be a fool for thinking Pihlainen won't do it, but anything can happen on the slippery slopes, and you can't count anyone out.
