CDM 2014 over and result

The Super Mario Kart World Championship 2014 was indeed a blast!! I will keep this short as the majority of you will have watched the streams online and will definitely be hearing of stories on the forum and photos on facebook very soon.

A big thanks to the FFSMK and all of the organisation team, Guillaume, FF, Florent and Patrick for their hard work and everyone for taking part. Congrats to Florent Lecoanet for winning the overall again, with Sami Cetin as runner up and then Julien Holmiere in 3rd, and all of the participants for taking part. We would definitely like to see 50+ players next year. Highly recommended to get to the SMK World Championships if you haven't been already! Roll on 2015 edition...

#101 Samuel Gomez improved his NTSC Bowser Castle 1 time to right near the 1'30" barrier. Now that CDM is over he may go for the sub here.
