Welcome to the Bobsleigh HomepageWhat is Bobsleigh? Bobsleigh has evolved over the years into a dramatically exciting and demanding sport. Competitions are run down ice tracks that are at least 1500m long and with at least 15 banked curves. Speeds of over 90 mph are reached.
The bobsleighs themselves are extremely expensive high technology machines made from steel, aluminium and composites. The bobsleigher of today is a highly trained athlete, and a good start at the beginning of the run (lauf) is vital. It is the pilot's responsibility to steer the bobsleigh down the track in the most time-efficient way possible.
Bobsleigh is a team sport and teamwork is the essential ingredient in order to create the perfect harmony necessary to complete a successfully course from start to finish. For further Information please go to 'Sports Articles and Advice'.
