If you haven't already watch the film Cool Runnings. John Candy is great in this.

Hey, BeeTee, how's this for an idea? You bring a skateboard and I'll drive you to the top of Aenos then video your progress as you luge down the road  :nai:

Hey Maik,
Sounds good to me but I think your video may show my 'aenos' suffering quite a bit of damage when I come off the skateboard.

Jamaica's bobsleigh team will end their 12-year absence from the Winter Olympics next month after being awarded a place at the Sochi Games.

Driver Winston Watts and brakeman Marvin Dixon will compete in the two-man bob in Russia.
