The 2016/2017 season will be Derrek Coccimiglio's 7th year competing in Red Bull Crashed Ice. He was first introduced to the sport after watching a commercial on TV, and qualified for his first event in Quebec City, and ever since he has been hooked. When he's not skating he's fighting fires and keeping his home town safe. This year he is more determined than ever to be the best in world. "I'll be bringing the heat with me once I step onto the ice at each event."
