Winter X Games ratchet up wow factor with freestyle snowmobiling

By Brandigal (Donna)     Jan 27, 2007 in Technology
Freestyle snowmobiling is the newest sport to be added to the Winter X Games.
This newest sport makes even the best snowmobilers shake their heads.
Doing back flips off ramps with your snowmobile. Extremely dangerous and yet people are doing it with their 400 pound sleds.
The sleds are modified taking off all the extra weight not needed.
Freestyle snowmobiling got its start a few years back when some of the racers got bored with going around in circles, so they started jumping anything they could find -- even houses.
If they miss a flip and land on the snow with the sled on top of them, could be some serious injuries.
"It's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen,It's unbelievable that these guys can flip machines that big." " said Ted Stevens
They are hoping X games will help promote the new sport and get more people interested in it.
I think it is crazy but you can bet i would watch it.
