Konigssee, GermanyThis week was made possible by the hospitality of the Navy Bobsleigh Team who were training at the track and invited Axel and his team to slide along with them. For this week Axel was joined by only one brakeman, Lewis Prentice. Lewis proved himself a huge asset to the team with an insatiable appetite for the sport, and a positive attitude throughout.
The week consisted of 8 runs down yet another brand-new track for Axel. However, after a crash on the first day, the pilot was able to learn fast, bounce back and be competing against vastly more experienced drivers by the end of the week. Set in the picturesque Bavarian mountains and in a relaxed and enjoyable environment on and off the track Axel said it was “one of the best weeks sliding I have ever had”.
