1-50

#1-Weisse continues his reign as site champion with another World Record! This time on Maple Treeway, which he’s never done before!
#6-Miracle decided to only work on glitch tracks this month, getting 1:12.058 on rDC G. The sub is in sight.
#10-Wouter Mulders joined the trend of playing SGB this month, subbing 2:03 to get 4th on the PP!
#17-Thomas S. gets in 2 PR’s this month on WL and rDKP, which rank 11th and 23rd.
#19-Samuel Klein shaves off 1.9375 AF and is now tied up with Leo!
#21-Attract is starting to attract some attention with a whopping 13.5AF cut, which is very hard to pull this high up in the rankings.
#24-Murray Wright submits 3 amazing top 20 times on both CCL, rLM and rDKP, but unfortunately gained AF
#27-LunMK7 gets 2:08.576 on rKC, that is all.
#28-Liure submits only 1 PR this month - a 3rd PP on CCL! Maybe you’ll “lure” in a WR here...
#32-Nozea is rapidly climbing the charts going from 39th - 32nd. He also got 1:26.546 on MW, ranked Titan A. Keep up the good work!
#35-Aaron Morton gets in two PRs this month, but moves down two places. Strange...
#39-X.Dark.x Like many others, decided to test their luck on SGB this month. He managed to get 2:03.445, which is his 4th Titan time!
#41- Martijn Veldhuis has cut 2.125 AF this month. In doing so he’s now under 50 AF! He also gets in a flap on rCM, which is .007 off the WR!
#49-Saserema makes his debut this month. His best times include a 4th on BC and 3rd on rKC.

51-100

#52-Lumi Heart got in 3 times and drops 3 AF. He also got another Titan time on rBC1, which ranks 13th. Your heart must have been pounding when you got that.
#60-Paradox has perhaps had the greatest month of us all, passing well known Adam, Evan and Joshua. Not to mention that he got his first top 10 WW on rAF, which is also Australia’s first top 10 WW!
#63-Joshua O. h no, gets in 3 PRs this month, but for the first time ever, gains AF. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!
#65-Hugo de Moya shows the power of Kleenex with a PR and flap on both CCL and TC. He also gets his 3rd King A time! Gotta get that Titan.
#68-Adam Roberts gets in 4 Pr’s this month, including an amazing 1:37.713 on RR, but has Evan hot on his heels. Better “XL” your performance this month!
#69-Evan Wiseman subbed on 4 tracks this month, while only submitting 4 PR’s. He’s also 1 spot behind the XL himself, Adam.
#74-Matthew Huinker is only 1 spot away from making the top 100 on rRR with a nice 1:14.292.
#81-Tate Jet makes a flying start with 1:26.620 on Daisy Cruiser, which ranks 3rd WW!
#92-White Improves his already legendary rLR to get within .2 of the WR. He also made a top 5 on CCL, noice.
#93-Chris Pye has been very hard at work this month, managing to beat 15/32 of his times. At this rate he’ll be in the top 50 in no time! But do make sure you take a break to have some pie.
#94-Stacy Needham returns after a long break since October to deliver 2 nice PR’s on PPS and rMT, ranking 123rd and 104th.
#98-Retro got in 1 PR this month, a 1:13.823 on rRR, which is also a Retro track. Coincidence?
