“The Crossover” host Michelle Beadle took a ride on a luge sled with the help of Olympian Julia Clukey. Luckily for all involved, it was a simulated ride in a studio rather than on an icy track.

Beadle asked Clukey at one point how fast she was going. Upon being told 60 miles per hour, Beadle asked, “Can I stop?”

That’s not possible until the end of the run, of course. Beadle joined “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon in (sort of) taking on one of the scariest Olympic sports out there.

“You are a crazy human being,” Beadle told Clukey after finishing.
