The World Cup circus has rolled into Fort William for the third round of the series, for what always proves to be one of the biggest and most exciting races of the year!  GT Factory racing dominated qualifying with Marc Beaumont and Rachel Atherton both the fastest riders down the mountain, with Gee in second spot.Danny Hart qualified third on a track that kick started his campaign to become World Champion last year. Steve Smith’s hand injury doesn’t seem to have slowed him down at all with the Canadian rider qualifying fourth, just ahead of Sam Blenkinsop.

Aaron Gwin crashed twice in his qualifying run, but as a protected top 20 rider will still be in the race today. Gwin didn’t earn any points in qualifying, meaning Greg Minnaar, who qualified sixth, is now the series leader. But all that could change in the next two hours. Once again Fort William is shaping up to be one hell of a race! Sit back, and enjoy.
