Last day at the Rat Race and the final podcast from Andy Pag is packed.

After winning the first three tasks in tight races, Michael Sigler gets overtaken on final glide by Josh Cohn, but has he done enough to hold on for overall victory?

Sixty-four year old Alaskan pilot Laddie Shaw talks about why he loves Rat Race.

Japanese ace Keiko Hiraki says that the standard of US pilots is much higher than their FAI ranking suggests, and a 15 year old student pilot gets his P2 license by showing the lead gaggle the way.
