Snith and Walker were fourth after the first run, but climbed into third after a mistake-free second run.

Eggert and Benecken finished more than six-tenths of a second ahead of Penz and Fischler. The margin between the first and second sleds in the race was actually wider than the margin between the second- and 10th-place sleds.
