Forget expensive skis and snowboards! All you need is a shovel. Behold the weird sport of shovel racing. Don't laugh - you can satisfy your need for speed just sitting on a shovel:
Chad Denney from Angel Fire set a new record in the men’s division on Saturday, streaking down the 1,000-foot course in 13.5 seconds. A radar gun clocked him at 73.64 mph. The speed limit on the New Mexico interstate is 75, so he could have punched it even a little faster without drawing the attention of the law. Even kids in the Little Scoops division, for those between 6 and 9, topped speeds of 44 mph.
