[Racing] WC#5 Lenzerheide: Gwin & Hannah fastest in Timed Training




And like that we’re back.  Lenzerheide is in full swing although he’s been beaten twice this year, Aaron Gwin is seemingly unstoppable.  He sometimes doesn’t participate in timed training, but when he does he generally takes it pretty easy.  Today was a different story.


Showing that he truly is back on form, Greg Minnaar cruised in with the second fastest time, close to 4 seconds off of Gwin. Mick Hannah still has the speed as well even after a long injury plagued career – Sik Mik was 3rd fastest on the day.


Good buddies Bernard Kerr & Connor Fearon posted up the 4th and 5th fastest times of the day respectively.

Tracey Hannah had the fastest time of the day in the women’s field by 3.5 seconds, but bear in mind that the unstoppable Rachel Atherton didn’t participate in timed training.


Manon Carpenter and Emilie Siegenthaler rounded out the top 3 fastest times.

French pinner Sylvain Cougoureux threw up the fastest time for the Juniors, this is his first season in the World Cup ranks.  Second place went to Valentin Chatanay followed by Jackson Frew.


Finn Iles wasn’t listed in timed training so either he could be keeping his cards close to his chest…

Two GoPros on Rachel.  She might not need to be this analytical, but that’s likely a reason she’s so successful.
