This week's top finisher is Gary Kjelleren with a top speed of 63.75 mph!
Awesome work out there Gary. Making those Liquid Forces haul the mail!
Your's truly came in a distant second with 51.9 mph and Saulius Muliolis bringing in the third spot with 49.9 mph. After several weeks of domination by Guy Lebrun, work and lack have wind seem to have broken his winning streak! :-)
But we are sure to see him again before the season is over.
Our two board riding entries were both on some pretty remarkable kite choices. Micheal Olsen took fastest snowboard speed with 31.5mph on an 18m Flysurfer Sonic in 11kts while Marek Karczmarczyk was close behind with a 12m Peter Lynn F-Arc bagging 27mph in 12kts. Flysurfer's current race horse and Peter Lynn's nearly 14 year old high aspect Arc kite. Both amazing kites to ride!
Rounding out the list we have Doug Scieszka and Joe "Fart boy" Armovit. Doug was on skates powered by an Ozone Pure and reaching 21.3mph on skates while Joe was powered by a Prism Tensor (natural gas) to bag 14.3 mph. Both showing the what we feel is the spirit of this ranking. Having fun.
Thanks again to all who sent in speeds this week and we look forward to seeing you again next week!
Week 5 submissions are due Feb 5th.
