Edney said the home track helped him post the best result of his career. "This is my home track and I feel I know it better than myself sometimes," he said.

"I feel really comfortable on the track here, there's a good vibe here always and I just feed of that energy, the energy of the town and the track."

The Canadian team has two more races this season, a World Cup at Lake Placid, New York, and an Olympic test event in Sochi Russia. After that the team members will have two weeks off before dryland training gets underway.

As for what it will take to bridge up to the Germans, the athletes know it's going to take a lot of work.

I think we need to keep working the way we are, we keep getting closer and closer," said Gough.
