LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N.Y. Humphries and Moyse laid down a track-record time of 56.63 seconds in the first heat to grab the lead, and edged Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams of the U.S. by 0.12 seconds. "To come out to any track and set a record, knowing no ones gone faster than that, it just proves to both of us and it cements that were where we need to be," Humphries said. Humphries and Moyse finished in one minute 53.66 seconds. Meyers and Williams were timed in 1:53.78, and Jamie Greubel and Katie Eberling finished third for the U.S. in 1:54.00. Moyse, whos been nursing a back injury, did not train all week. "She didnt push all week and then today comes in and we have the two fastest starts," Humphries said. "I think it shows the comfort we both have for each other." Humprhies bounced back from her worst World Cup result in nearly two years, when her historic streak of 15 straight podium finishes -- including 11 victories -- ended in Park City, Utah last week. With Moyse out, heavy snow bounced Humphries and Chelsea Valois off the podium. Edmontons Jenny Ciochetti and Valois, of Zenon Park, Sask., placed 14th at 1:55.34. Americans swept the podium in the mens event with Steven Holcomb adding to his undefeated start. Holcomb and Chris Fogt finished two runs in 1:50.19. Nick Cunningham and Johnny Quinn were second in 1:50.74, and Cory Butner and Chuck Berkeley were third in 1:50.85 -- capping off a sweep that came on the heels of the U.S. women winning a gold and tying for silver at a World Cup race in Park City, Utah last weekend. Holcomb has now won all six World Cup mens bobsled races this season, four of them coming in two-man. He extended his lead in the World Cup two-man standings to 136 points over Cunningham. But Holcomb was more impressed with the 1-2-3 U.S. finish than extending his own personal start. "Thats huge," Holcomb said. "These guys have been performing well all year. For them to finally put it together on the last day of 2-man, last day of the North American tour, I think thats really going to help bring that motivation and confidence into Europe. Its definitely going to be harder over there. We had to take advantage of our North American experience and capitalize on it here because trust me, its going to get a lot more difficult." Calgarys Chris Spring and Jesse Lumsden, of Burlington, Ont., were the top Canadian sled in sixth with a time of 1:51.02. Justin Kripps, of Summerland, B.C., and Edmontons Bryan Barnett posted their second-straight eighth-place finish with a time of 1:51.13. "Im really happy with the way weve started off the season," said Kripps. "I know were capable of more. We have some things to clean up, but we are moving in the right direction." Lyndon Rush, of Humboldt, Sask., and Calgarys Lascelles Brown were 13th at 1:51.77.

Schmidt Peterson Motorsports said Wednesday it has hired Villeneuve to race in this years Indianapolis 500, 19 years after the Canadian driver first drank the milk in Victory Lane. "IndyCar is growing again and thats why last year when I started watching races again, every time I watched I felt almost angry I wasnt there," the 1995 race winner said on a satellite hookup from France during a news conference held at the teams Indy headquarters. At age 42, Villeneuve seemed content being a television analyst, musician and RallyCross driver. But when Schmidt and co-owner Rick Peterson, also from Canada, made a serious offer, he couldnt refuse. The 500 is scheduled for May 25. Villeneuve certainly has a compelling resume. As an Indy rookie in 1994, he qualified fourth and finished second to Al Unser Jr., and was named the races rookie of the year. The next season, the reigning CART rookie of the year was even better. He qualified fifth at Indy, forced Scott Goodyear into a costly mistake on the final restart and eventually held off Christian Fittipaldi to become the first and only Canadian winner of the race. Villeneuve completed all 400 laps at Indy in those two starts and won the 1995 CART title, too. But after starting 33 races, winning six poles and five races in two IndyCar seasons, Villeneuve had a chance to become an international star. So he headed to Europe and joined Formula One -- the series that made his late father, Gilles, a household name. Like his dad, who died in a 1982 F1 qualifying crash, Villeneuve excelled on the world stage. In 163 career starts between 1996 and 2006, the younger Villeneuve reached the podium 23 times, won 11 races, 13 poles and claimed the 1997 world championship. At that point, American open-wheel racing wasnt even on the radar. His journey back to North America began in 2007 when Villeneuve made the move to American stock cars. Over the next seven seasons, he dabbled in Sprint Cup, Natiionwide and Le Mans series as well as sports cars.dddddddddddd Villeneuve regained interest in IndyCars last season as he watched how close and competitive the races had become. To him, it reminded him of the series he left almost two decades earlier. Suddenly, he was interested in making a return -- if he could find the right car and the right team. "To get this opportunity is a gift," Villeneuve said. "A lot of people say when you have kids, you slow down. I want my kids to see me race." Schmidt is the winningest team owner in Indy Lights history and already employs two full-time drivers in the better-known IndyCar series -- Russias Mikhail Aleshin and Frances Simon Pageland. In previous years, Schmidt has always found a way to compete at Indy. Getting Villeneuve might be the biggest coup of all for his low-budget team. "Indy is a special place. We go there not to exist but to win the race," Schmidt said. "To see a guy that finished second and finished first there, I dont think hes going to have any problem going back." Villeneuve becomes the fifth 500 winner on this years entry list. The others are three-time winner Helio Castroneves of Brazil, two-time winner Scott Dixon of New Zealand, 2000 winner Juan Pablo Montoya of Colombia and Brazils Tony Kanaan, the defending champ. Another trip to Victory Lane would give Villeneuve two more milestones. He would break Al Unsers record for the longest gap between first and last victories. Unser went 17 years between his first Indy crown in 1970 and his record-tying fourth win in 1987. Villeneuve also would break Gordon Johncocks record for the longest gap between first and second wins at Indy, 1973 and 1982. Villeneuve isnt motivated by records. He wants to win. "Im a racer," he said, explaining he does not plan to retire anytime soon. "Ive got to find ways to get better and better and better, and Im going there with a team thats very experienced and has been very successful as well."
