Summer Is Officially Over

Yes, it's sad but true. In bobsled terms, the summer has officially ended. Why, do you ask? Well, because I have driven 80mph down an icey chute. We started bobsledding on last Monday, I took 2 runs. It was very interesting, it's the first time I've bobsledded as the returning champion. Well, everybody expects me to come out with record times on the first run. I don't blame them, trust me I want to see it too. Just don't forget that I haven't done this in 7 months. I dare any one of you to take 7 months off of driving your car. Sure, when you get back in it won't seem like you had even left, but trust me, there are many things that are going to seem a bit strange. It's like riding a bike, you can hop right on and go, but it takes a few minutes before you can do any tricks.

This year the Bodyn Project ( who build our incredible sleds, not only fixed but completely refurbished our sleds, then gave them a complete makeover. I'll tell you what, they look INCREDIBLE and to honor your presence on my blog, I'm going to give you a sneak peak at my new sled design, 2 months ahead of the rest of the world. It's the least I can do to thank you for coming here and spending a few minutes. I just want you to know, these pictures hardly do any justice to the sleds, they look amazing and I can't give enough praise to the Bodyn Project and the engineers that made this possible. (these are in a large format so you can get a better idea of what they really look like.)

What do you think? Yeah, they're pretty nice. Again, wait until you see it on the hill. Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that we've started and it's that time of year again. I hope you had a great summer, and cheers to a great winter.

It's Very Beauty

What results should our funding be based on?

Who is the US Bobsled Team?

During the season Bobsledders and Skeleton-ers are paid for the races that take place each weekend. Skeleton athletes get paid $1000 for their 1 race. Since bobsledders race twice in a weekend should they be paid twice?

How much equipment should be given to the #1 team
