With March arrived the OCR season, and with races across North America and Europe we’ve seen some big changes across the board.
Familiar names top both the male & female leaderboards, after Kris Rugloski (USA, 1) and Ryan Kempson (USA, 1) had impressive wins at the first of the Savage Pro series in Georgia. This starts their season off also topping the Savage leaderboard, let’s see if they can hold onto their titles as the season progresses…
In hot pursuit both on the course and in our rankings are the second place male & female from the same event, Alex Walker (USA, 2) dropping one place from first place in February, and Shawn Roberts, (USA, 2) a new entry.
Other new entries on the leaderboards are American Jamie Horianpoulos (USA, 4) and Brit Kate Stillwell (UK, 5). Stillwell is an exceptional athlete who long deserves recognition, but with her successful participation in other sports rarely competes in OCR however, due to her successful performance in the UK time trials, she placed 5th in the leaderboard this month.
Another new entry international athlete, breaking up the wave of US flags dominating the board, is Nicaraguan Alvaro Vasquez (NIC, 9) he earnt his position this month with his performance at Savage Florida.
Although not placing in the top ten by our committee, special mentions go out to Danes Leon Kofoed and Jonas Drescher for the win at Gov Games. With Kofoed traveling to the US this month we expect to see some podiums heading his way.
