The first 4-man bob event of the weekend in Winterberg certainly proved spectacular.
In the first run the sled of American driver Cory Butner flipped in turn nine and self righted further down the track. While the home crowd favourite Maximillian Arndt took the lead off the world cup leading American Steven Holcomb.
Next up was Holcomb, who started well and was looking good before getting high in turn nine. His upper runners leaving the track and by the time force pushed them back unto the ice it was too late and his men followed the same misfortune has they had in training earlier in the week and at Butner has earlier.
Final sled down the track was that of Arndt who consolidated his lead in the first leg by recording the second fastest time in run two, only 0,02 behind his younger countryman Freidrich
