Six top ten finishes for USA Luge in Winterberg World Cup

by Lauren Howe


It’s a bit of a shoulda, woulda, coulda situation for me. Clearly, I had a much better second run, but my first run had too many big mistakes to come back from. I have a lot more work to do before Worlds, but it’s nice to see the speed is possible.”

It was great to start the European World Cup circuit for our second half of the racing season. We pulled a great race today and hope to keep the momentum up for tomorrow’s team relay.

We had a few mistakes at the top of the track for both runs today but we managed to clean up the rest of the runs for a decent finish, We are excited to build on this for next week in Igls!
