Rachel used her feet like outriggers on a canoe to make certain she didn't tip over.
She managed to do most of the course without using here feet, but she did use them the last sled length or two, so it didn't really slow her down. It just kept her from tipping over.
I guess it must have been legal and Art and Blondie just did it the hard way without using their feet at all.
And ironically, the two Rachels with those big bolt-ons usually have a higher center of mass than most people. But when they lay down on their stomachs on those skinny little sleds they have a lower center of mass than most people, making balancing easier. I predict Vanessa also would have been really good at the sledding challenge, too.
