Seeding in everything but name, qualies yesterday only really culled about 30 elite men and left the rest of the categories unchanged. The protected riders all automatically get through and the running order is still decided by UCI ranking.

It did give us a chance to see who's up to speed but it was obvious that some riders were simply cruising to ensure a place on Sunday fun day. In short, a storm in a teacup but, as always, it didn't stop us running over it with a fine toothed comb. Take a look through the gallery above for all the stories from day 3 of World Champs.
