After a flat out practice and Timed Training session
on the rough and rowdy Fort William course riders were back between the tape to fight for the top qualifying spots ahead of tomorrow's racing.
World Cup overall leader Camille Balanche took the top qualifying spot after a flying lap down the hill to beat Vali Höll by over one and a half seconds. Myriam Nicole wrapped up the top three but was over six seconds off the pace, it will be interesting to see if anyone can answer the speed of Camille tomorrow.
For the Elite Men Laurie Greenland backed up his Timed Training win to go fastest in qualifying by over two seconds. Charlie Hatton also followed up a great training result to second place today. Greg Minnaar is back at the top of things again with a third-place finish and just 2.490
seconds off teammate Laurie.
In the Juniors it was Phoebe Gale and Jackson Goldstone who went fastest and will be last down the hill tomorrow. It was a British top two for the Women as Pinkbike Racing's Aimi Kenyon secured 2nd place in qualifying.

Did Gwin hurt your feelings in a dream?
You people make no sense. It’s obvious your feelings are hurt. LOL
Also quite sure it’s top 100 qualify for finals. 101 is not in there. So as far as Neko is concerned, he’s in the same spot on AG
Me too. He’s such a great representative of the sport regardless, but I know he still wants results.
What doublecrownaddict is to YT Bikes, Sterlingarcher is to Aaron Gwin
Some people are a*sholes, AG doesn’t seem to be one, of course you are free to dislike him for any reason though, even if it’s likely down to jealousy or as you say something political.
(Assuming they aren't using sharpied up Maxxis of course)
Not everyone's cup of tea, but certainly doesn't seem to be a bad bloke.
The brakes aren’t the problem especially because Commencal/muc off also runs them.
He ran with Onza while he was on YT. So he’s proven he can win with those tires. Kenda for him, not so much.
He’s been using E.thirteen for a while.
It’s not the frame as Joe and Dakota have good seating in the finals.
He got a mechanical. It’s plain and simple
Times were close across all four categories, but so good to see Charlie and Laurie bringing the heat.
That's a fair margin from 1st to 3rd.
On pace with Ben and Reece!
Most people would want to test the waters. Can she even finish the track in a timely manner? Pretty sure she got her answer
that should be half an hour track for me...
Absolutely brutal crash, I really hope he's alright.
