Bobsleigh and Skeleton -- FIBT World Cup Tour Nov

Probably the most afraid I've ever been in my entire life riding in a 4-man bobsled down the Olympic track in Park City, Utah.  The sled was driven by the German Olymic team driver for the 2002 Olympics.  It was the last run of the year and you could tell he was was pretty bored with taking tourists on bobsled rides.  That was until my son started speaking in German and telling him to let it all hang out on this last run of the year.  I was in the number 4 seat and their was nothing behind me to hold me into the sled.  We hit over 85 miles an hour at one point going down the track.  For one of the first times in my life, I knew I was mortal and was going to die before we reached the bottom as I really had to strain not to get throw out the back of the sled.   I ready to do it again. It gave me a whole new appreciation for the sport and the shear courage of the athelites. 

I'll be heading back up to the track on November 16th and 17th as the FIBT World Cup is held at Olympic Park in Park City, Utah.  Admission is free and you'll get to an amazing chance to see the teams from around the world prepare for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.  Training runs will start on November 13th through November 15th.
