    curling and bobsledding are my favorite to watch. Other than that I see most of the sports on tv all the time.

    somebody try to track down the video. it gets pulled down every time it's posted online. i guess he hit a metal pole going 90 mph.

    you can see the visor from his helmet bounce back onto the track

    looks like there were a couple of people right in front of where he hit...







    thats seriously rough...I think I'd take a motorcycle accident < this

    Wow, no protection. Did they not learn from when those bikers fell off the track(I think it was a couple stories high)?

    I hope he did not suffer, RIP.
