A very BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Gerard and to Travis. Setting a new world record for Gerard was tremendous. He just keeps getting harder to reach every year. Travis's second place showing in his first 18' comp was superb. He has come a very long way in a short time. He will be scary good next year.
Way to go guys, you did real good!
