The 2014 season marked Scott's sixth year competing in ice cross downhill, and the 23-year-old is still striving for first place, skating ahead of his competitors and stepping once again on the podium. Scott has competed in 20 ice cross downhill races around the world since 2009. Growing up in Mississauga, Ontario, Scott enjoyed hockey, simultaneously perfecting numerous skills to be a standout player, and feels ice cross downhill is no different. »To be successful at Red Bull Crashed Ice,« Scott explains, »you need great speed, strength, and balance.« After watching his brother, Kyle Croxall, competing in Red Bull Crashed Ice in 2008, Scott decided to register for the chance to compete in the 2009 Canadian edition and qualified. For the very first time, both brothers took part in the event in 2009 in Quebec City in front of thousands of fans and family members.
