In the second of his special reports from Konigssee in Germany, Jonathan Wills is invited behind the scenes to experience life with the men's bobsleigh teams.
Like the women's programme, they lost their funding after the last Olympics and just raising the money to compete this season has been a feat in itself.
The fact that they are challenging teams with multi-million euro budgets is a remarkable achievement.
No hotels or teams of physios and coaches for team GB; they travel from race to race in a van, set up base in a rented flat, and train wherever they can - often a garage or car park.
Yet if there were medals for team spirit they would win every time.
And if you ever wondered what it's like to actually go down an ice track in a Bobsleigh, jump aboard as the teams take you through every twist and turn. It's as good as being there without the g-force or adrenaline.
