Justin Leov was flying. A top five result in quaifying today.
You not only see Eliot Jackson, Mitch Ropolato and Bernard Kerr on the track riding together, in qualifying they are pretty close too, scoring 22nd, 23rd and 24th place in a row, just less than 0.3 seconds apart.
Myriam Nicole making her way through the long rock garden to the second fastest time of the day.
Aaron Gwin keeping it low and fast over the classic hip jump to another first place qualifying run.
Greg Minnaar was not far off in second place today, making sure to stay as close as possible to Gwin in the overall standings.
Shooting in MSA year after year makes it so difficult to find new angles, but top shooter Sven Martin is more than dedicated to do so, no matter what.
Brook MacDonald tearing appart the track with the 4th fastest time today.
Coming back in 6th after that horrible crash from yesterday is a tough one for Gee Atherton.
Josh Bryceland came so close to his first World Cup victory here last year, that you have to have him on the list come Sunday.
Jared Graves was one of the unluky riders today that fell victim to the rough and brutal track and punctured during qualifying.
Just after the sun went down it started pouring heavy rain for quite some time. So instead of dust we should see some mud flying tomorrow.
Fastest junior today – Australian ripper Conner Fearon.
