SKIING IS NOT A SPORT...
Previous | 1 | Next

I believe it was Mick that spouted that little gem....

Just watching Ski Sunday and the 100mph barrier has been broken on the Wengen downhill :shock:. There aren't many sports that require that much skill, bravery and fitness and even less that offer a more impressive spectacle.

agreed

100mph on a couple of lengths of metal takes balls.

I'm oot.

100mph :shock: The leg strength required to cope at those speeds must be immense.
It must also be scarily fast. I probably hit 15mph yesterday which was scary enough in a child's toboggan.

This might be bollox but I think at that speed the skis don't event touch the snow due to that air flow below the ski?

Happy to be corrected on that as I know fvck all about skiing!

Awesome event this week. What a course - mental altogether

Must be absolutely nuts going at silly speeds on a set of planks, I can remember doing a black run in Austria, reputedly one of the toughest runs in the Alps. I'm not afraid of going quickly but when I got to the end of the run I was shaking, part adrenaline and awesomes, the rest was pure un-diluted "I think I've just shit myself" fear.

Stolen Orions on fire off the hard shoulder of the M8. I watched neds litter in the dark near the Tennents shop. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

I'm sure we used to hit those sort of speeds on carrier bags.

I watched Africa :(

Yes, yes, yes, I'm doing that all the time. You don't have to remind me every 10 seconds.

Including this bit?

100mph is mental! I've done 50mph on a snowboard and that was pretty hairy so double that with corners thrown in is mind boggling.

Don't play with a girl's heart, it's easily broken and she only has one. Play with her boobs instead, they're bouncy and she has two of those.
