Merry Christmas! And happy sliding

Women's national hockey team Canada Olympics
Merry Christmas everyone! I've been back home in Calgary for some rest and training since the last World Cup races in lake placid last week. Where we came 8th in both 2man races and 9th in 4man continuing our streak of our highest finishes on each track!

Lets start racing!

I've just arrived back in Calgary after a few weeks on the road sliding in Whistler and Park City where we had our Canadian Championships as well as some pre-season training. It was an awesome trip with sunny weather and fast ice. I ended up 2nd in Canadian Champs in 2man racing with Bryan Barnett on the brakes and Rush

Winter is Coming...

Sunday morning I headed down to Eau Claire in Calgary to help out at the Terry Fox run.  Myself and some other athletes were introduced on stage and we helped lead the warm up before the run, it was really fun!

World Champs and Russia

We've just finished up in St. Moritz for World Championships. We had an awesome result in the 2man, where I teamed up with Neville Wright and finished up 12th. We had a great time in our first race together, pushing well and having my best drives of the week.

Christmas Holidays and St. Moritz training

We ended off our 1st half of the season with a couple of great finishes for Team Kripps, 10th in Winterberg in the 4man and 14th in the 2man, and 14th in the 4man in La Plagne, a track I'd never been on until that race week! This is very good for us as we're in a bit of a battle to be one of the nations that gets 3 sleds at World Champs this year.

Crossing the Pond

The North American part of the World Cup circuit is finished, ending with a great race in Whistler, BC. Huge congrats to Chris Spring and his team of Tim Randall, Adam Rosenke and Ben Coakwell placing third in the 4man and earning their first World Cup medal, awesome job!

Pre-Season and Canadian Champs

We just got back to Calgary after a solid week of training in Whistler BC where we were able to get some higher speeds on the ice to help us prepare for the race season. The weather was unbelievable out there and it felt like a summer vacation for the first few days. Once we hit the ice it was time to focus... first 4man runs of the year with a new crew and hitting speeds of 145km/h.

Pierre's Out

Its been a week since Pierre announced his retirement from coaching the Canadian Bobsleigh Team. I've waited for a week hoping he'd change his mind, but its not looking good. Pierre was an awesome teammate and became a great coach and mentor for me when I jumped into the drivers seat after the 2010 Olympics. Trust me, driving those things at 150km/h can be scary at first, you're gonna want someone like Pierre telling you how to do it. Its going to be a different world out there without Pierre. Sure if you're involved in bobsleigh Pierre has probably ripped a strip off you, maybe even thrown a runner or a camera in your direction but thats just part of the passion. It gets the people going. I'm going to miss that.
