Danny Hart has just gone fastest in seeding at the 2016 World Championships in Val di Sole.

Hart took first blood to continue his fine run of form from the latter half of the season where he won three consecutive World Cups. Second place went to defending World Champion Loic Bruni with his compatriot, Florent Payet, in third.

Bernard Kerr impressively finished fourth despite having one less day of practice than the rest of the field and Remi Thirion completed a great day for the French in fifth.

Be careful not to read too much into these results though it's basically a glorified timed training and has no real impact on tomorrow's race, we're not sure who was pushing and who took it easy.
