How to Work a Bobsled
Working a bobsled, as it slides along an ice track, relies chiefly on a driver to steer it and a brakeman to slow it. Operationally, little has changed since the sport's invention in 1890 by English holidaymakers. However, bobsledders now compete only in male and female teams of two and four. Bobsleds are constructed of a steel frame under a fiberglass body, with fixed rear runners at the back and movable runners at the front.
