KONIGSSEE, Germany (AP) — Steven Holcomb of the United States won his second World Cup overall two-man championship on Saturday.
His seventh-place finish in the season finale with Curt Tomasevicz was more than enough for Holcomb to clinch the two-man title for the first time since 2006-07.
Canada’s Justin Kripps got his first World Cup race victory, teaming with brakeman Bryan Barnett to post a two-run time of 1 minute, 39.71 seconds. Switzerland’s Beat Hefti and Alex Baumann were second, 0.15 seconds back. Lyndon Rush and Lascelles Brown took third for Canada, 0.32 behind their teammates.
Cory Butner and Chris Langton were fourth for the U.S., two spots ahead of teammates Nick Cunningham and Andreas Drbal.
Holcomb finished with 1,645 overall points, 35 more than Hefti.
