I'm sorry but the Department of Sporting Games and Safety will not issue a license for this type of activity and find that it lacks appropriate protocols for serious injuries including concussion, death and dismemberment. I hereby demand that you CEASE AND DESIST these activities at once or you and any participant will be subject to civil action up to $100 million dollars in fines and damages to pay for treatment of those already injuried in your "Sport".

Looks like BMX downhill... on ice without the bike
