While the USA-1 team in Sochi became the first two-man U.S. bobsled team to win a medal in more than a half-century, two athletes also made history stateside by piloting the first ever two-man chicken sled.
While Carriel and Phillips didn’t make it to Sochi this winter, the team continues to train and remains committed as ever, with an eye on the 2018 games.“Our performance in Park City was a good start, but we’re not satisfied,” said Phillips. “We think we can improve our time if we make a few aerodynamic tweaks to the Go Cup. In the sport of competitive chicken sled racing, every tenth of a second matters.” Chicken Sled in 2018? Want to show your support for Carriel, Phillips and the two-man chicken sled?
