    Thanks to everyone for participating in this contest!

    Bit of tough sledding for most people, but there was a three way tie for points at 12, with the race time being the tiebreaker (official time of the race was 2:03:59 – and remember you had to remain under that time to be closest):

    1st: pcolaballer10 (2:02:10)
    2nd: jtsnow4091 (2:01:30)
    3rd: mortalwombat (2:04:48)
    4th: jbh117 (2:03:20)
    5th: bmiller813 (2:03:01)
