The reason for the crash was that the pilot of the bobsled had put his head down into the sled to achieve maximum aerodynamics but was then driving blind. He didn't quite judge the exit right from memory and flipped the sled but got enough speed to get first place anyways as the crash happened on/after the finish line. Badass move
Balls to the wall. Almost literally.
Always remember, your bones will not break in a bobsled. No, no, no. They shatter.
I used to play F-Zero this way. Crash just as you cross the finish line for dramatic flair.
I believe this is referred to as the Hammond method.
What are actually bobsleds doing? What are the different tactics?
