After the Junior Men faced some tough conditions in finals
, the Elite racers are now against the clock for the first time this week.
Vali Höll is looking fast at her home race as she bests the surprise wet conditions to go quickest by just over two seconds. Camille Balanche has been unbeaten in Leogang since 2020 but she was not able to match Vali's speed today. Nina Hoffmann is again near the front of the race and takes third place.
The wet and windy weather caused more disruption as the early riders got some of the better conditions. Topping the times today it is Davide Palazzari who leads Matt Walker by just 0.243 seconds. Ian Guionnet made it into the top three and was the only other rider within two seconds of the top time. Finn Iles was the fastest of the later riders as he proved he could handle the tricky conditions and ended the day in 7th, 4.861 back. We are not sure just who has and hasn't made it through yet, but we will publish a semi-finals start list as soon as we have it.
Check out the results below.
