BMW G450X vs bobsleigh

Dailies -



One BMW-sponsored bobsleigh, one frozen ice track, one BMW G450X and a couple hundred screws for the tires. Pitting a dirt bike against a bobsleigh in its home environment might seem like a one-sided battle, until you realize the bike’s running the track in reverse.

    Kind of cool, but I wonder why they didn’t splice in the shots from each mounted cam as they pass each other? That would have made it better….

      Those GoPros are super unreliable, they probably turned off or lost the footage or something.

        +1 right there, I bought one about 2 years ago and it has worked maybe 3 times.

        Cool video! I do find it hard to believe BMW “broke” into the course however :)

        Had mine for a while and havent had a single problem. As long as you dont cheap out and make sure to use a good card its amazing. Plus its practically indestructible and GoPros support is great. But I have one of the newer HDs so maybe its a problem with the older ones.

    pretty crazy.. red bull. there you go, hahaha

    That was cool. The ‘break in’ part was cheese, but running the two vehicles on the track at the same time, in opposite directions? That is bad ass.

    Is that how you learn to work a bobsleigh, luge or skeleton?
