From Whistler, CAN
(Nov. 10, 2018) – Justin Kripps has yet to be beaten in the 2018/2019 campaign.
In the second 4-man race of the season, Kripps was once again fastest in both heats on his way to victory over Canadian teammate Chris Spring, who took silver.
Spring came into the second heat fourth fastest, but a great second run moved him up into the silver medal position, .23 ahead of Codie Bascue from the United States.
Dominik Dvorak, Nick Poloniato, and Justin Olsen rounded out the top six.
Taylor Austin finished eighth in the fourth Canadian sled, while Lamin Deen finished ninth for Great Britain. Teammate Brad Hall came into the second run in the bronze medal position, but trouble in the second run knocked him out of contention.
