Week 4 is complete! This week's participation was GREAT!!! Lots of people seem to have speedy conditions and the opportunity to head out and play. :-)
Guy Lebrun is back in action after a no wind week and assumes the top position yet again with a top speed of 69.14 mph. Knocking once again on that 70mph door. Followed closely by Bob Pelletier also of Quebec with 64 mph and in third, Marcel Lepine rounds out the top 3 and helps Canada dominate the top 3 spots in the GSR. Well done!!
Robin Larsson of Sweden was the fastest rider on skates this week with 45.1 mph. Crashing on skates can get ugly so we applaude his bravery as we do with Jonas and Johan, also from Sweden and our lone American on skates, Doug Scieszka. :-)
Big shout out to Kylan Morneau for bagging 18.5mph. Not only is he the youngest kiter in the ranking but this was also his very first day riding solo! He looked totally pro out there and we are looking forward to seeing him climb the ranks in the future.
A special mention for Mike and Adam Woroniak for hitting 29mph as a tandem tow. It was great watching them burn up the miles out there Sunday.
The winner of this week's random participant T-shirt drawing is now other than Paul "The Badger" Morse. Congrats Paul!
Week 5 submissions are open from Jan 29-Feb 4.

Hi - many thanks for organizing the weekly GSR. It is very appreciated. Just a Q, I submitted a speed of 37.5 mph for week 4 but it seems you duplicated the speed that I made for week 3.
