We've discovered something new today from Red Bull - although this appears to be the final event. They haven't gone and invented another form of carbonated beverage, but instead they appear to have created a brand new sport. It looks like a cross between ice hockey and ski cross and involves skaters hurling themselves down a rather scary looking course.

We are quite excited about this prospect, and figured it couldn't hurt to have a live thread for it - especially as there will be a live web broadcast on RedBull.com.

We don't know that it's going to be any good, and we have no idea what the rules are or if there are any. If it turns out to be disappointing, we may just delete this thread and pretend it never happened!

Join us at 12:30am GMT for the live thread. More information available here.
