CALGARY - Americans Elana Meyers Taylor and Charrelle Garrett won the World Cup women's bobsled on Saturday for their second straight victory.

They won last week in the season-opening event in Lake Placid, New York.

"I'm pretty excited, it definitely feels good to get another win, especially when it's not on home ice," Meyers Taylor said. "It's a big testament to how hard Cherrelle has worked this season, and we're really starting to gel and click. Our push times give me the ability to make some mistakes down the track, so I have her to thank for this win."

They had a two-run time of 1 minute, 51.76 seconds. Germany's Anja Schneiderheinze and Franziska Bertels were second in 1:52.21, and Canada's Kaillie Humphries and Kate O'Brien followed in 1:52.65.

Meyers Taylor and Humphries were set to make their World Cup debuts as four-man pilots later Saturday.
