Remi Therion just before the deluge and hail hit the top of the track. 37 men made it down the track before everything came to a grinding halt.
What happens after a big rain delay and a lift that kept being shut down for lightning? You get a line up of mechanics looking to download.
Ropo was one of the first riders back on track after racing resumed and a light rain fell. He is sitting comfortably in 13th place going into Sunday.
Gee gets qualifying morning off to a roaring start. There was about 5 rain drops and then the sun came out. The rain picked up just in time for qualis though...
This hip has to be the most shot jump this season, and that includes the MSA hip by the gondola. Such epic views!
Emmeline Ragot barely keeps it together in the dust on the upper off camber section. This is just how narrow it is.
Steve Peat pedals out of the famous Val D'Isere rock switchbacks. If you watch ski racing, you'll recognize these cliff bands.
Bryn on the other hand, had not such a great day. He was surrounded by a cloud of dust on multiple occasions this morning. No doubt he will get it together for Sunday though.
Brook shows everyone how it's done when you carry this much speed on track. 3rd on the day and looking strong for finals.
