New Bo-Dyn 4-man bobsled could save US team


LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) — U.S. bobsled star Steven Holcomb finally has something to smile about — a brand-new, four-man sled with gobs of carbon fiber, state-of-the-art suspension, and updated steering. It has all compliments of former NASCAR star Geoff Bodine, ace designer Bob Cuneo, and North Carolina-based race car builder Jim Garde.

Holcomb, the reigning Olympic champion in four-man, tested Night Train-2 for four days last week at Lake Placid and says it has a lot of potential.

Holcomb's back on the ice this week testing a new two-man sled produced by automaker BMW. He says it's solid, too, and thinks it's good enough to take into production.

That's good news for a team that has watched its equipment fall into disrepair.
