Gee Atherton wins qualifying at the 2013 Hafjell World Cup

There are still a pile of men left to go in qualifying in Hafjell, but it’s pretty safe to say that Gee Atherton has made it yet another Atherton double after Rach just took the win in the women’s qualifying.

Mick Hannah deserves a big shout out though after coming within just 0.110 of a second behind Gee, and he was actually fastest at the first two splits. Mick was obviously seriously gutted not to take the win at the World Champs the other week, and now he’s clearly out to try and make up for that. With the tight times it’s certainly going to be an interesting race come Sunday.

Talking of Sunday, we reckon it’s actually possible for Gee to wrap up the title with a round to spare. If he wins and Stevie Smith is outside the top five then the title is his. But, as we all know anything can happen…

Anyway, here how the top of the field stands at the moment:
