they were talking about the olympic facility last night on the history channel, that track has picked up a nickname of 50/50 according to the program i was watching because the competitors have a 50/50 chance of crashing on the way down


i hope this guy isnt the first of a series

Rip to the poor guy.

They stated that people can actually get faster then 90mph. They for sure need to put up some sort of protective barrier there. I'm willing to net do r doing something about that right now because that's some fucked up shit

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Used to see them get tossed out before at other tracks, but they landed on snowbanks.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

American Luger Tony Benshoof quoted prior to the accident "When I first got on this track, I thought that somebody was going to kill themselves." How did the track designers overlook this?

you have low enough walls going that speed with steel poles next to the track... asking for trouble. major design fail.
