THE “TRACK WALK”, down through the tube

Piloting a bobsleigh starts with choosing your line. The bobsleigh must pick up speed to « stick » to the ice through centrifugal force. At that exact moment, you will feel the pressure on the ropes at your fingertips. Any pressure has an impact on the bobsleigh’s trajectory. You really need to know the bends!  “Middle, middle, middle” says Thomas Girod, your instructor and former competitor for France in the luge (22nd in the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010).

Becoming a pilot

2.30pm, bend 12. You put your helmet on before listening to Thomas’ final briefing, “Middle, middle!”. For this first descent, you are the pilot. Your hands grip the controls… Off you go! The bobsleigh sets off and picks up speed. 45 crazy seconds and 7 bends later, you cross the line at 80 km/h. Bravo, you are a bona fide bobsleigh pilot!
