FrontRunners: Taking the Plunge

<< Back to Robb Report, February 2007

    Those inclined to plummet more than 40 stories in less than a minute can attend classes in March at the new Stephan Bosch Bobsled Driving School at Utah Olympic Park (www.olyparks.com) in Park City, Utah. The school will offer six one-day, $500 courses, which Bosch, the current America’s Cup champion, will teach. To avoid whiplash or other injuries, students are instructed to press their shoulders to their ears, arch their backs, and tuck their feet under the calves of the rider in front of them. A four-day Bobsled Fantasy Camp ($1,800) will take place from February 27 through March 3.
