Holcomb was the pilot and sentimental leader of the U.S.'s "Night Train" sled, the four-man team that captured Team USA its first men's bobsled gold medal since the 1948 Olympics. He and Curt Tomasevicz have stayed on from that quartet, and Holcomb's brakeman in the two-man event from Vancouver, Steve Langton, has been added as a pushman, as well as Chris Fogt. The "Night Train 2" has gone bronze-gold-bronze at the last three world championships, putting them in the mix to successfully defend their gold medal in Sochi. In the 2013-14 World Cup season he won both the two-man and four-man overall titles. At Sochi he won bronze in both the two-man and four-man events.
