Bobsled Head

This is the very helmet that cradled my head while hurling down the cement bobsled track in a wheeled 4-man bobsled at almost 70 mph pulling up to 4 G's in the turns.  Summertime at the Olympic Sports Park in Park City, Utah on the bobsled track used in the 2002 winter Olympics.  The summertime run is cheap and slow.  The winter run costs more than 3 times the summer fare, obtains speeds of close to 80 mph and pulls up to 5 G's.....  I'll check this off my bucket list using the summer run.  Too much youth has passed under this bridge to subject myself to more torture than the "calm" summer ride.
