Laurie Greenland came down fastest in timed training at Fort William today. Greenland has stuck with 27.5 inch wheels on his Mondraker this weekend and it seems to be paying dividends so far
Laurie finished in a time of 4:42.318 and Bruni was second on 4:43.695 (and also on 27.5 inch wheels) but 29 inch wheels were hot on their heels with Greg Minnaar third (4:44.454) and Danny Hart fourth (4:44.870). As always, we’ll qualify this by saying, none of this counts for anything, wait until tomorrow before you start up the hype trains – especially with so many big guns losing their protected status in Lourdes.
In the women’s category, Rachel Atherton was quickest but in reality only her and Manon put in fast laps. Rach finished in 5:23.941 with Manon eight seconds back.
