Team GB went in overnight occupying seventh place on the leaderboard, thanks to an impressive second run that saw them climb three places from 10th.
"You can climb up on the second run often because of the way the ice degrades and we have really done that," Tasker told teamgb.com. "We came down tenth in the first run and now we are seventh and only a few hundredths away from the lead.
"We seem to always do better in the latter runs. It is not something we like to do all of the time, chase from behind, but if we are good at it that is the way we are going to do it. We would have rather been higher up than tenth in the first run but we were 12th off and that meant we had the 12th worst ice.
"It is great that we are clawing our way back. When we came down tenth we knew we weren't out of it. Often people will right you off but we can prove that we can do it over the rest of the runs. The race is run over four runs after all. It can go right down to the wire and we plan on taking it that far."
Russia currently lead the four-man event going into day two, while Latvia and Germany occupy second and third places respectively.
