Gwin was first down the hill today and stayed in the top spot all afternoon. His closest challenger was Loris Vergier (who actually beat Gwin in three sections) but the rest of the field was at least three and a half seconds away.

Mike Jones followed up his great timed training yesterday by slotting in third which left Danny Hart in fourth Greg Minnaar in fifth. Brendan Fairclough will have gone some way to silencing his doubters by grabbing sixth place.
