    Bobsleigh, like sister-sport skeleton, relies on the start for much of what follows. You need to push the sled down the track before jumping in - logic dictates that the faster you push it, the quicker you'll go once you're on-board.

    That means the push-start is vital and bobsleigh athletes train hard to be exceptionally strong and quick. Current GB bobsleigh athletes have set faster 100m times than many dedicated 100m runners, for example. So if you sign up for bobsleigh, you can expect an intense workout alongside sitting in a technologically advanced barrel while plummeting down an ice slope.

    British Bobsleigh offers a membership package which gives members the chance to compete at the British Championships, alongside a Try it! page with more details.

    Skeleton is a true daredevil sport. Competitors plummet head-first down a steep track at speeds of 80mph in what is considered the world's first sliding sport.

    Britain has had substantial recent success in the sport, with Amy Williams and Lizzy Yarnold securing golds in successive Winter Olympics, 2010 and 2014 respectively.

    The British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association offers a membership package that gives members the chance to try the sport and compete at the British Championships. There are also regular Talent ID days if you think you have what it takes.

  4. What is it?

    This two-day event is the start of an eight-round World Cup in the build-up to February's Winter Olympics.

    The competition starts in the United States resorts of Lake Placid and Park City, before moving to Whistler in Canada at the end of November.

    The European swing starts in December - first in Winterberg in Germany and then Innsbruck in Austria.

    In the new year, Europe hosts three more events - Altenberg and Konigssee sandwiching the event in St Moritz, Switzerland, all of which are in January.

Laura Deas and Ashleigh Pittaway will also be competing alongside Yarnold.

    In the women's bobsleigh, Mica Moore and Mica McNeill will aim for gold.The pair won Junior World Championship gold in Winterberg in January, while McNeill piloted her way to three top-ten finishes on the World Cup circuit last season.

    Bruce Tasker lines up alongside Joel Fearon, in the two-man bobsleigh, with a view to repeating the kind of performance that saw the duo record Britain’s best two-man World Championship performance in 50 years when they finished fourth in Igls 19 months ago. In the other sled, Toby Olubi partners pilot Brad Hall.
