#35 Andy Lundeen has been unstoppable in the last two weeks. He has almost re-written his full timeset with Non-NBT and NBT cuts; and the potential for more is huge. He is now ranked 9th in USA and is approaching a cluster of rivals who he will challenge for more National ranks as the next PRs follow.

#136 Fabrice Baro of Canada made some great progress this week with some of the lengthy tracks, Bowser Castle 2 and 3, and Mario Circuit 4 where he made cut average finish cuts.
