    Drum roll please... In what has likely been the most highly contested (and most drawn out) OTB ever, we've finally got a winner.

    Congrats to jhart15, the winner of this OTB contest! Of 429 predictions, 133 correctly chose both Stevie and Rachel to win. Of those 133, jhart's prediction was the closest. He was off by a combined time of just 0.501 seconds.

    Cheers to RockShox and Troy Lee Designs for stepping up with some amazing prizes, and thanks to all of you for playing. It's been a rad year of OTB contests and we can't wait to start them up again next spring.

    Cool that's what I thought. Not sure if I won but I nailed Athertons time with 4:01:42, but my Smith time was 3:27:18...not sure that was enough...but close for sure ..... I would be wicked stoked if I did win thats for sure....i would look more into others times but takes too long on my phone.
