EVENT NOTES

After Blake Granger of Max-D went back-to-back with Overall Event Championships to open up the weekend, Mark List did the same in the final two events. Mark managed to total 40 overall points, but many other athletes won competitions along the way. First, Soldier Fortune took the Racing win, followed by Blue Thunder grabbing the ATV Racing competition. Up next, it was El Toro Loco’s first win of the day with the 2 Wheel Skills Challenge. After the break, Max-D won Donuts, before El Toro Loco was back on top in the Speedster Obstacle Course. Heading into Freestyle, El Toro Loco held the points lead. EarthShaker’s Tristan England was able to win that competition, but it proved to be too little, too late, as El Toro Loco and Mark List took the trophy home once again.

EVENT NOTES

For the first time in Duluth we have a different Overall Event Champion, however the path to victory was similar. This time Mark List of El Toro Loco proved to be the most consistent athlete throughout all the Triple Threat Series disciplines. He won Racing and the 2 Wheel Skills Challenge, while also finishing second in ATV Racing and the Speedster Obstacle Course. His fifth-place finish in Freestyle allowed EarthShaker to get close, but to that point Mark List had done enough to seal the Overall Event victory.

EVENT NOTES

Max-D’s Blake Granger went back-to-back with another Overall Event Championship on Saturday afternoon. He did so again by being the most consistent athlete throughout the event. He won both ATV Racing and the Speedster Obstacle Course, while also finishing no worse than third in any competition except Donuts. In the Speedster Obstacle Course final, he went head-to-head with his wife Kayla Blood of Soldier Fortune. Getting the win in that competition may have been the difference as Kayla went on to win Freestyle for the second time this weekend and finish only 5 points behind Blake for the trophy. We’ll see if he can make it three in a row later on tonight.

EVENT NOTES

Max-D’s Blake Granger said early on that his goal was to be the first ever Overall Event Champion at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, Georgia and it turned out to be prophetic. Max-D was consistent throughout the entire event, winning ATV Racing and the 2 Wheel Skills Challenge, while also finishing in second place in Racing, Donuts and Freestyle. Had it not been for some bad luck and breakage during the Speedster Obstacle Course Semi-Final Round, Blake would’ve also had the opportunity to compete for the win in that competition as well. In the end, Max-D totaled an extremely impressive 41 out of 48 points en route to the first Overall Event Victory in Duluth.
