It is the first World Cup win for Melbardis this season. He finished first in heat one and fifth in heat two, but was 0.05 seconds faster on aggregate than second-place finishers - Rico Peter's team (Switzerland). Steven Holcomb (U.S.) placed third, losing 0.06 seconds to Melbardis.
Oskars Kibermanis' four-man bob, which recorded a victory of its own a couple of weeks ago, finished in eighth place, while Ugis Zalims' team was seventeenth.
