Cresta Event - Grand National, Bille Fiske Trophy, Draw for Johannes Badrutt
The legendary Cresta Run has an even longer tradition than bobsleighing in the Upper Engadin. Since the winter of 1884/85, the most daring have plunged headfirst down the 1200-m-long Cresta track on a skeleton-type sledge. In this men-only sport – women are not allowed – speeds of up to 140 km/h are reached. This sporting pleasure calls for plenty of courage as well as precision and is unique in the world.
