Whitehall's Bascue Finishes 5th at Inglis
Whitehall's Codie Bascue and his brakeman Carlo Valdes finished fifth in the two-man bobsled World Cup season opener in Igls, Austria yesterday.
Bascue and Valdes had the second fastest time in the first heat, and yesterday's finish is Bascue’s personal best result on a European track.
“This is Codie’s best finish on European soil, and I was certainly proud of him and really excited for him to be in second place after the first run,” said USA Bobsled Driving Coach Brian Shimer.
The action continues today with the four-man race.
