Bobsledding or bobsleighing is one of the fastest winter sports. The idea is to make timed runs down steep, twisting ice tracks in steerable sleds. The teams usually consist of either two or four riders. After a push off by the whole team, it is the responsibility of the driver to steer the best line to complete the course in the fastest time possible.

More about bobsleigh
Bobsledding is not for the faint hearted with bobsleds capable of speeds up to 100mph. Crews regularly undergo up to five times the force of gravity on banked curves. As a result bobsleds crashes can be spectacular but potentially very dangerous with a risk of broken bones or brain injuries. Thankfully running injuries are more common, notably in the hamstrings as a consequence of the initial sprinting required to push the sled at the beginning of the race.
The shell of the sled is designed to protect the crew as safely as possible, in addition compulsory safety helmets and one-suits are required to protect their bodies from ice burns. Even with the safety measures in place bobsleighing is considered one of the more dangerous sports. It is highly recommended that you take out adequate insurance for protection against potential injuries.
