Mount Washington - Top Finishers Video - 1991-1993

I'll refer to this batch of videos as "The Early CMS Days". Featured here are snippets from the years 1991, 1992, and 1993. For some reason, dd is not in the video from 1993... not sure if he cut it out or if it just didn't make the video. DD loaned me a video he made, of the top 10 or so finishers from each year, and with race director Bob Teschek's permission, I ripped them onto the computer and labelled each finisher with name, age, place, and time. We'll include the top 10 or so finishers (some will be a little more). The full videos from each year can be purchased here.

(**Once you start playing the video, press the HQ button to enable High Quality playback...Considering this was from a VHS cassette that was a copy of a copy of a copy, it won't be that great as far as quality goes, but it's better than the standard playback quality.)
