The Flotrack boys were sitting around our hotel room throwing around darkhorse candidates who could surprise people in their respective finals so we decided to turn the banter into a bit of a friendly competition. Although the definition about who qualifies as a  "darkhorse" was fiercely debated, Ryan Fenton, Dan Knewitz and Kevin Liao were able to agree upon who would and would not be allowed.
