Well qualifying turned out to be a stunning day on the bike!

Eleven elite men, two elite women, and two junior men all into the finals it leaves team Australia looking strong. The clouds stayed at bay until the riding was all over but who knows what that will do to the track overnight. Thunderstorms are forecast for midday tomorrow so it’s anyone’s guess. Thanks to Matt Staggs putting in the hard yards on the hill, for the banger gallery and captions!
