Topless Sledding Championships Attracts 14,000 In Braunlage, Germany

 

 

 

” It may not be the Winter Olympics but this topless tobogganing tournament has certainly got fans nipping out for a better view.

  These busty babes braved freezing temperatures to compete in a brrr-illiant TOPLESS tobogganing tournament. 

  More than 14,000 spectators turned out to watch the eye-popping event where 30 male and female competitors bounced along a 100 metre track on sledges. 

  One lucky onlooker said: “It was very cold and because of that some of those girls would definitely have had a bit of an advantage in a photo finish.”

 

 

   Lest anyone think that this is a new occurrence , a search of Youtube uncovered the fact that this tournament got it’s start in 2009 . Below is a news report on the second annual event from 2010 .

Bombardier’s Ideas For The Future Of The Snowmobile

 

 

 

 

 

” Do you love the feel of gliding over soft powder while astride your favorite snowmobile? Have you spent the winter helping out friends and family thanks to your trusty Ski-Doo? Whether it is outdoor sporting activities or participating in search and rescue, snowmobiles provide a critical function in our lives during Canadian winters. Building off existing models and considering concerns raised by snowmobile enthusiasts, I bring you a list of nine concept ideas about the future of the snowmobile.”

 

”  Wireless heat & power

This idea could take the form of inductive plates embedded in the footrest of the snowmobile that would create a magnetic field to transfer electricity wirelessly to the boots of the driver and passenger. The boot would then use this electricity to generate heat. The electricity could also be transferred to heated socks or to the rest of your suit, gloves and helmet using a similar hidden and wireless process.”

 

 

”  Integrated rear trunk

When you’re leaving for a weekend ride, there never seems to be enough space on snowmobiles for cargo. Sure, you can buy portable bags or luggage as accessories, but maybe it’s time to design a snowmobile with an actual rear trunk large enough to carry gear for two. This compartment could also be heated (at least above the freezing point) so that your liquids (like contact lens fluids) would not freeze during. With 48 inches to spare, I am sure designers can think of clever ways to integrate this.”

 

 

”  Warning sensors

Another desirable feature would be infrared sensors that could detect humans, animals, and other vehicles in front of you and around corners. Basically, sensors in front of your sled would detect and interpret information using the onboard computer. The results could appear on a display in the dashboard and be sent as a warning (using digital voice technology) to your helmet.”
