Week 9! Winter is hanging on by a thread but we are still getting entries from around the world as people scramble to get a few last sessions before their hard water turns wet and their fields go green.
Guy Lebrun is back in the weekly first place position just under the 60 mph mark. Will he beat his best speed of the season before the season ends? Who knows? He set the bar so high right out of the gate!
Last week's top dog Paul Morse managed to dodge car size drain holes and bag 54.2 mph before heading back to work. Not sure if he'll be able to get out again before the ice is gone for good.
Shout out to local hard charger Jim Cline for bagging his fastest speed in three years at 51.6 mph.
Meanwhile the boys out in the Mid-West keep throwing down as they loose more and more ice based riding. John Zdechlik comes in 3rd for the week with 44.2 mph.
The list is getting shorter and shorter as the season fades. We look forward to seeing anyone who can still ride in next weeks list. Who know's who the last rider standing will be?
We will update the overall ranking soon.
WEEK 10 SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE ON MARCH 11th.
On a side note we want to apologize for the delay in getting this week's ranking up. We are in a bit of a scramble as our season is closing rapidly here and we are trying to keep tabs on the ice conditions and juggling clinics while we are also starting to see bike related work come in as we are transitioning to bike operations. Thanks for your patience! -Chris.
