"We've had great results this year, so I'm pretty happy with the way it's performing," Holcomb said. "We're working hard to make sure that these sleds go as fast as they possibly can. We've been testing things left and right, week to week ... it's all part of the process, figuring out what's the fastest and how to get faster."
"It was a wake-up call," said Holcomb, who drove USA-1 to a four-man gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. "We almost lost the title. We were able to put down the second run we needed to keep it. It takes more than great driving and pushing. There's a team behind the team that deserves recognition, and sled technicians Richard Laubenstein, David Cripps and Jim Garde really get the credit today."
