After winning the first four World Cup races, Steven Holcomb could have run away with the overall title. He didn't. With Holcomb having to overcome early struggles on European tracks and adjusting to a new sled designed by BMW engineers, the title race came down to the final run of the season. In the end Holcomb won his second overall World Cup two-man bobsled title, and first since 2006-07. Here's a look back at the 2013-14 two-man season.
Calgary, Nov. 30

Lake Placid, Dec. 13 and 14
Holcomb kept his perfect start to the season alive, winning both two-man races in Lake Placid. The U.S. swept the podium in the second race, with drivers Nick Cunningham and Cory Butner winning silver and bronze, respectively.
Winterberg, Jan. 3
Less familiar with Germany's Winterberg track, Steven Holcomb and Steve Langton struggled, finishing in seventh place. Swiss pilot Beat Hefti (right) took home the gold medal -- and huge glass of beer.

For the second consecutive race, Russian pilot Aleksandr Zoubkov (above) finished on the heels of Beat Hefti. Holcomb and Fogt came in fifth.
