by Ed Spratt  
After a third in Logan and a second last week in Val di Sole Henry Kerr has been on a role in the junior mens category. This week he would qualify first ahead of series leader Thibaut Daprella by over 2 seconds.

Timed training results are in from Vallnord, see who went fastest in their first time against the clock in Andorra. In the Elite Men, Loris Vergier laid down a great run putting him nearly a second and a half faster than any other rider. Finn Iles came across the line in second with current series leader Troy Brosnan just behind him. David Trummer continued his great results this year and sat fourth at the end of the training session. Completing the top five would be Brook Macdonald 2.518 seconds off the pace.

For the Elite Women Marine Cabirou was untouchable for the whole session with a gap of almost seven seconds to Tracey Hannah. Ten seconds back from the Hannah was Emilie Siegenthaler who finished in third position. 22 seconds back would be Camille Balanche and Mariana Salazar was just behind her in fifth. Rachel Atherton completed a timed run but would get a time of 6:45.436, over a minute and a half back from Cabirou.

In the Junior racing, there was a change to the normal leaders with Matteo Iniguez and Mille Johnset getting the fastest times in their respective categories.

 @Clifflane3: I would also like to see more but I am not sure how Much trouble it is with the following:
Riders are on track at the same time
Broadcast overall length when overlaping riders are split into complete runs, and what about live timing, overlaping makes it hard...
A broadcast also has side storys to make it more interesting like interviews etc.

Just some questions that I ask myself, not trying to prove anything. No idea how broadcasts work

 It's purely for PB's purposes. There are so few world cups that it is necessary to drag each race out for 4 days. It's like cricket, but also somewhat different. It's perfectly justified in both cases.

 Please, whoever is writing these, stop writing ‘xyz would do abc’. Its fine to use ‘would’ once or twice, but it reads so weirdly like this. Just say ‘xyz was...’ or ‘abc posted a time of...’. The tense is just wrong currently.
  • 1 1
 Sorry, it is not 'wrong'.

I for one am happy to see the use of 'would' as both a foreshadowing literary device and a past event that would become a future fact.

Both of the below are grammatically fine:

"When he crossed the line, we has in the hot seat, however, ended up second when his time was beaten by someone else."

"When he crossed the line, he was in the hot seat, however, would end up second when his time was beaten by someone else."

 @orientdave: it's not necessarily wrong it just reads terribly if every other word is would
  • 1 1
 @rudymedea: If would every would other would word would was would I would agree would with would you.
Personally, would I would find the would balance would OK.

On a separate note, did you ever come across this little gem..

"James, while John had had 'had', had had 'had had'; 'had had' had had a better effect on the teacher"

 It is permissible to stop, scratch your nuts (or whatever) and ponder a line.
