Park City, Utah (March 1, 2020)– USA Bobsled/Skeleton (USABS) national team selection races for the 2021-2022 season begin this week in Park City, Utah. Races will be held on the 2002 Olympic track on March 3 and 4 before continuing in Lake Placid, N.Y.

International federation bobsled and skeleton officials canceled plans to have a training week and World Cup race on the newly built track in Beijing at the end of this year's sliding season, rescheduling it for October 2021. As a result, USABS is holding team selection races this spring with a chance for additional races in the fall if the schedule permits. The 2021-2022 USABS National Team is expected to be named at the start of next season.
