Here’s what the winners had to say about their search:

We had a lot of theories that we were working through, but the main thing we figured was that Muhammad Ali and Howard Cosell were friends and so we thought we needed to look at Howard St and with the cattails bend all the way to the end, we went to where Howard street ends and started looking around there and found it on the post.

We have participated since the beginning. We have a blast trying to find the medallion. We get out on our bikes and search and have met a lot of great people along the way. We have been close many times. This is our first time finding the medallion. 

We hope everyone enjoyed this round, and The Riddler will be back in May!
