Troy is on a tear! Just .018 up on Gwin means it’s anyone’s game; especially with Remi Thirion as the number one dark horse. Interestingly, aside from Troy and Gwin, everyone else was at least 4 seconds behind them. Barring a DNF, it looks like Gwin has the overall win wrapped up.
In the women’s things were a bit tighter with the top 3 all coming in within the 4:59 mark just fractions of a second apart. Myriam Nicole is back in a big way with Tracey Hannah nipping at her heels but let’s be honest, if Rachel wasn’t hurting from a broken back we likely wouldn’t really even notice. We’ll see if Rach can pull off a perfect season.
In men’s juniors, there’s not much to discuss other than Finn Iles coming in a hair shy of NINE seconds up on everyone. Amazing. After the photos, you’ll find full results at the bottom of the page.
