WEEK 7! There seems to be a lapse in the Canadian domination of this season's ranking and this week US riders have taken the top spots. There seems to have been a little battle between Robert Cook and Robert Bocik out in Wisconsin with Cook coming out just slightly ahead. Very cool to see the two riders competing on the same kites. Almost "one design" racing out there this week. :-)
Die Hard Dave Armovit, one of our most dedicated participants rounds out the top 3.
This week we received our first entry from Scotland! Dougal Ranford had to do some climbing to get to some snow but he got the goods and got his first submission in. Winter hasn't been kind to Scotland this year and his submission took some substantial effort to bag. (See pic below.)
Now the rules state that you have to be on a flat surface, we know. But Dougal submitted his speed based on an uphill run and he went to a lot of effort so we will let this one fly. :-)
This week's t-shirt winner is Herb Cuene out in Green Bay Wisconsin!
Thanks again to everyone who submitted! We are looking forward to seeing you all next week!
