In the eleven editions of Crazy Bob, it was possible to admire everything: from sailing ships to submarines, from tanks to pyramids, passing through bathtubs, dinghies, real mobile bars, dance floors, airplanes; all vehicles equipped with sliding and braking systems such as to guarantee maximum safety for the participants and fans who crowd the circuit. It is one of the longest-running, futuristic and captivating events in Friuli Venezia Giulia. A goliardic challenge between bobsleds and self-built sledges in which the winner is whoever best sharpens ingenuity, humour, collaborative spirit and desire for healthy fun.
It all started as we remember from a happy intuition of the operator from Tolmezzo Attilio Quaglia and a group of friends who at the beginning of the 2000s launched an imaginative competition from the snow of the Zoncolan, which quickly transformed into an extremely successful event, succeeding in its past editions to magnetize tens of thousands of spectators on the Carnic snows, obtaining, among other things, an incredible national and international media exposure.
In March 2022, during the last edition, 29 teams took part, over 150 competitors for an estimated public attendance of thousands of people over the three days hosted in Tarvisio. The Wallabies of Cernieu di Nimis were the winners of the trophy, staging the historic TV series of Hazzard – with Bo and Luke Dukes on board the General Lee, Boss Hogg and Ross Coltrane, cousin Daisy and uncle Jesse. During the race, real works of avant-garde ingenuity were seen, from anti-covid syringes to the strobe lights of discos, from traveling coffins to dinosaurs on skis, passing through pedal boats, ambulances, trains, kiosks, reproductions of cartoons.
