After a wild practice and Timed Training session on the fresh Les Gets track, riders faced a real challenge to find consistent speed on course. Troy Brosnan and Nina Hoffmann went fastest in Timed Training, but qualifying is where we will really see how fast riders can hit the new course.
In the Junior racing, Phoebe Gale and Jordan Williams came out fastest on the rough and rugged track with some decent winning margins against the rest of the field. Jordan Williams, the fastest rider in the Junior Men's category has already broken past the top training time of Troy Brosnan by nearly six seconds.
Myriam Nicole dominates the Elite Women's field on the Les Gets steeps as she goes over seven seconds faster than Vali Höll to set the top qualifying time. Camille Balanche crosses the line in third and becomes the only other Elite Woman to come within 10 seconds of Myriam.
After a slower start to the season, Loic Bruni looks to be back on form in Les Gets as he goes fastest by 0.631 seconds. Angel Suarez pilots his Commencal to second place with Loris Vergier rounding out the top three. Loris was green at all splits before crossing the line 0.841 back so it looks like he could be the one to beat tomorrow if he gets a clean run. First-round winner Troy Brosnan was around half a second off the pace at the first two splits before ending the day with a DNF. We hope Troy hasn't had any serious problems today and we will see him back between the tape for finals tomorrow.
