Umm that kid was top 15 in the country at his age group if I read the article right. Thats pretty darn good.
actually, the kid that was top 15 at the young age whom became world class was Dave Reid. Reid was the only one of the top ranked 15 years olds to make it. The other guy, Doug Consiglio was not top ranked at all. The way I heard it, Malcolm lapped consiglio in a 3K when they were 14 and raced for the first time.
