WINTERBERG, Germany (AP) — Titleholder Beat Hefti of Switzerland returned to the bobsled World Cup circuit and won his first race of the season by dominating a two-man event on Saturday.

Hefti missed the first three races in North America because his usual brakemen were injured. He and Thomas Lamparter beat Alexsandr Zubkov of Russia and his brakeman Dmitry Trunenkov by a half second. Lyndon Rush and Jesse Lumsden of Canada came in third 0.40 seconds back.

Steven Holcomb of the United States, who won all three of the North American races, finished fifth with brakeman Curtis Tomasevicz.

Olympic champion Kaillie Humphries of Canada won her sixth consecutive race going back to last season pushed by brakewoman Chelsea Valois. Elana Meyers of the United States was second with Katie Eberling, 0.10 seconds behind.
