The annual event took place in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, with approximately 90 teams competing on special Hornschlitten ‘horned sledges’, which take their name after the shape of the runners on the vehicles. Racers hit dangerous top speeds of 100km per hour on the course and as you may have guessed, not everyone managed to keep control of their sledges. The official website described the contest as ‘thrilling and snow-filled fun’. ‘For this is the day, when thrill-seekers flock to the town to take part in the Bavarian Sled Championship,’ the website said.” w/ photos + video
