Pyc missed most of last year's World Cup schedule as he was focussing on his studies at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, but returns this season as a member of Pierre Lueders' crew.
The native of Wroclaw, Poland had an auspicious beginning in international bobsledding, after being called up as a last-minute replacement for the 1992 Albertville Olympics - at the age of 19. Since then, Pyc has been one of the steadiest and most versatile sledders on the circuit.
In Lueders' rookie campaign in 1992-93, Pyc was the brakeman as the upstart Canadians upset Olympic champion Gustav Weder of Switerland in the opening World Cup race of the season.
In 1994-95, Pyc reached new heights with Lueders, winning the overall World Cup two-man and four-man titles and capped the season with a bronze at the world championships, ending a 30-year medal drought for Canadian teams at that event.
