Podium Cafe Quick Challenge, Round 2

New, 3 comments

update: I can't do this as a link; check your answers on the flip.

So far, thanks to the relatively unpredictable results, it's an all-way tie for first place (a/k/a last place). Several people had DiGregorio -- pretty good guess -- and a special mention to Brandon^, who picked JJ Cobo in stage 10, arguably the rightful winner. But... close doesn't count. On to round three!
