    I think I have watched about it already in a local show before. It is usually done on a steep road going down for the speed such as shown in your photo. That makes the sports more exciting for the players most probably.

      This is a dangerous but fun sport. Any man who had played this sport had suffered a lot of injuries before mastering it.

        yes,if you are careless you may get injured especially at downhill racing.however, someone can wear additional protection, apart from gloves and helmet.they can wear leathers,knee pads, elbow pads.
