Two Tales | Bryan Cormier vs. Logan Karnow By Jeff McConkey For this installment, I don’t think we could find two racers more opposite. They are both great guys who put in a ton of effort, but come from completely different backgrounds. One is French Canadian, and the other would really like to be.
