OK, so technically, this has very little to do with engines or racing, but we think it’s cool that our good friends at Intercomp Racing are playing a role to help the American Bobsled and Skeleton teams try to bring home more golds in the next Winter Olympics.
Intercomp is proud to announce their support of USA Bobsled & Skeleton (USABS) athletes as the Official Scales of the USABS team! In the highly competitive world of Bobsled and Skeleton, teams look for any sort of edge that they can gain. With the help from Intercomp, the USA Bobsled & Skeleton teams can now look at the total weight of their sleds with and without crew members, as well as the weight distribution across the runners. The USABS team identified Intercomp as their preferred partner for their leadership and prominence as the scale of choice for many other high-profile racing organizations and teams.
“With their proven success in racing and beyond, combined with their RFX™ Wireless Weighing Technology, Intercomp was an obvious choice for the USABS team,” said Richard Launebnstien, USABS Crew Chief, “and the fact that they are an American manufacture made for a perfect fit.”
The USABS’s mission is to enable United States athletes to achieve sustained competitive excellence in Olympic competition and to promote and grow the sports of bobsled and skeleton in the United States. For more information on the team, and to pledge your support, visit: www.usabs.com
