Sunday 19th 


Morning transfer back to Innsbruck / Igls.


The Mens 4 Man Bobsleigh race is the Blue Riband event of the Igls World Cup weekend. It is one of the most incredible sports you'll ever experience or photograph. It's simply sensational. The immense power, noise and colour of the Bobs are like nothing else as they approach 100mph on the course.
