Congratulations to John Zdechlik out in Minnesota for his first place spot in week 10 of the GSR. Robert Bocik took a close second place with Lonny Heiden close on Rob's heels. A firmer surface might have gotten Lonny a higher spot but that's how it goes. Apparently the Slingshot Rally was the kite to beat for week 10? ;-)
Although participants have slowly been picked off as their conditions have gone away, we keep getting new riders from regions that still have good riding. The ranking runs for 12 weeks and at this rate we might just make the full 12 weeks.
At least some of us.
To illustrate the tenacity of some of our participants. below is a video of the conditions Joe Sharron was in recently. Scratchy riding is still riding!
Keep sending in your submissions if you can make the next two weeks. We will keep the ranking open for the full 12.
Week 11 entries are due by March 18th. See you next week!
