... that Arizona FM used the Airspeed momentum for a new 23.6 team record average?

Arizona FM delegation
posted Jun 20th, 2018 - Arizona FM was once again the first team that took on the June draw of the World Tunnel League. Teams from Florida and Northern California will follow up later this month with their events, while the Czech teams are on their WTL summer break to focus on outdoor competition.

The player-coach team, with Ian Pedowitz, Jimmy Xu and two Arizona Airspeed members, joined the World Tunnel League in April on the largest WTL leaderboard in the very young history of the league. 29 teams posted their scores in April, and Arizona FM started with a 20.4 average after eight rounds that could be judged.

The same lineup, with Airspeed members Ari Perelman and Mikhail Markine, were back in May without any logistical or video trouble and turned the official 16.3 average of April into 21.9 for the ten May sequences.

The FM team record average of May is already history, as well, and the new 23.6 average is the benchmark for all AAA Class teams who will take on the ten June sequences of the World Tunnel League.
