[ad3] Yet another Specialized Demo finds itself winning qualifiers today…This time it was under Troy Brosnan on home soil in Australia.  It should be no surprise that Mick Hannah came in at second place as well; nice to see him clocking in a solid run.  Would be nice to see him on the podium as it’s been some time.  In the women’s, the ranks look about the same for most of the season with Rachel on top followed by Manon and Tracey.  Kiwi Matt Walker took the top spot in men’s juniors followed by 5 Australians.  They had a strong presence today.

Mick had a sick qualifying run. 2nd place. He deserves a shoulder rub.

Gwin is always a threat and could likely be keeping his cards close to his chest. He rarely goes all out in Qualies.

Loic wasn’t quite his usual self. Usually the king of qualifiers, he sat back in 4th. Tomorrow could show a different result.
