  • Description

    After exacting training sessions, only twenty-nine of a scheduled sixty international competitors lined up for the start of the five-nation 3,600 metre ski-bob race at Garmisch Partenkirchen, Austria, February 3.

    Thrills and spills abounded as contestants skimmed over the hard packed snow on ski-bobs -- similar in shape to a bicycle, but with skis replacing wheels.

    Erich Brenter of Austria was the winner with a time of 3 minutes 30 seconds. Countries represented; Austria; Germany; Italy, Switzerland and the USA.
