It was hot and hectic in Val Di Sole, Italy for the seeding runs.  You can find the full results here, but the short and sweet is that Danny Hart was up by a sizable 2.5 second spread and Rachel Atherton came into first by about a half second.  Perhaps the coolest thing that happened today was that with just one day of practice, Bernard Kerr smashed his way down to 4th place.  Also cool to see the ever consistent lanky frenchman Florent Payet grabbing an unusually high place with 3rd.  In second was Loic, showing he still has the speed, post injury…

All eyes in this dude. Danny Hart has been on such a tear that even with Gwin's prowess on this track we've got to wonder if he can be stopped.

This track has already claimed some victims and tomorrow it will surely claim more.

Despite a reserved seeding run, it's safe to say that Aaron Gwin is still the favorite on this track. In 2012 he won here by nearly 8 seconds. That's absurd...bring on tomorrow!
