Myriam Nicole... Well if we had to pick one girl who has a good chance of pulling one out the bag it would be her. She is looking quick.

RESULTS: Women's Qualifying Lourdes 2015

Bonkers! Things looked to be wrapped up with Rachel Atherton leading the charge, until Tracey Hannah appeared from the trees, flew down across the finish line and swiped first place from under her nose, with a massive time advantage. The slight Aussie knows no fear and you can be sure that she is ready to step it up even further for finals.

[related_articles]Myriam Nicole and Emmeline Ragot followed up in third and fourth - both absolute pinners who we expect to follow up with big results tomorrow in finals. And of course the same goes for Manon Carpenter in fifth, although we're obviously gunning for her and Rachel to be fighting it out for first and second in finals... Rule Brittania etc.

So that's women's qualifying wrapped up from Lourdes and here's how the results look:
