Back for the 4th year, is the Fastest Known Time of the Year Award. What is the most interesting, bold, innovative, and well, fast, FKT this year?
We received 641 new FKT submissions in 2019 (they are still coming in)! We sorted those out to 19 exceptional ones for ladies and 20 for the gents. Please take a look - the links are hot and take you to great info and sometimes gripping trip reports.
Our panel of 30 FKT Voters, with a Gender, Geographic, and Age balance, will vote on these in the next week, with the FKTOY Awards being announced the first week in January.
Also listen to Episode 65 of the podcast with Peter Bakwin, discussing the trends we've seen in 2019, and what might be coming in 2020.
YOUR comments are welcome - did we miss anything? What is inspiring you?
