It's been dry and dusty here in Andorra. What is easily the best track of the season has been loose and wild. Practice has been some of the best we've seen all season with roost explosions everywhere, and qualies were even better. We have seen brown pow explosions everywhere and we can't get enough of it. It seems the best has indeed been saved for last. It was an interesting day of racing as well. Gee Atherton took advantage of rider protection with his shoulder aggravated again after yesterday's crash, and Tahnee Seagrave took a trip to the hospital today after a big off, both hope to race tomorrow.
Troy Brosnan was at home in the dust and went fastest today, but Gwin was hot on his heels. Remi Thirion took third and, no doubt, has his sights on winning again here in Andorra. Pom Pon and Gaetan Vige also carried the torch for Commencal today, taking first and third in qualies. Finn Iles took the top spot for the juniors and Eliot Heap took second. Rachel Atherton was a bit off the pace today with an injured back and Tracey Hannah was on pace for second. The women's race will be a tight one tomorrow. Danny Hart has been a force this second half of the season and took seventh today, he has been looking like a shoe-in for the win this week. Amaury Pierron and Ferran Jorba had stellar runs today taking fourth and fifth. The chance for a top spot by a wild card tomorrow looks great. Hopefully, the rain forecast tonight doesn't change conditions too drastically and we get another day of wild loose racing for this final World Cup of the season.
