Kripps moves to 14th place

The team of Justin Kripps and Nick Carriere moved up one spot in the two-man category on the weekend.

It was a tough weekend of World Cup bobsleigh competition but the team of Justin Kripps and Nick Carriere moved up one spot in the two-man category on the weekend.

In the four-man competition, Kripps and the Canada 3 team finished in 19th place.

Only 0.68 seconds separated the ninth-place finish from the 19th-place finish over two runs.

Kripps and his teammates are working on quicker starts and putting in two consistent runs for their next competition.

In World Cup bobsleigh, there are two heats or runs.

The start order depends on the team’s current ranking.

The top 10 sleds draw for the start order and the remainder of the field then go in order.

The next bobsleigh competition for Kripps is this weekend in Whistler.
