Kris Whitfield pulled off a feat that is even more rare than a double when he won back-to-back Super Comp titles. Making the win even more extraordinary is the fact that Whitfield raced fellow Denver-area resident Gary Wamboldt in both final rounds and managed to win both of them. A year ago, Whitfield got the best of Wamboldt in a close double-breakout final round. This time, Whitfield grabbed a big lead at the start and won with a 9.544 on the altitude-adjusted 9.50 Super Comp index. Over the last two years, he has won 12-straight rounds in Denver, and his worst light has been a .030.
