2012 Mont Sainte Anne Downhill Qualifying 7

<b>Aaron Gwin, What can we say? Another first place and a few more points.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Greg Minnaar: Second today about 2 seconds behind Gwin. Was he pinned or playing it cool? The mind games begin.</b> -Hoshi Yoshida

<b>Danny third today leaned and locked.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Moses once parted the Red Sea, Brook MacDonald is separating the rockgarden and with no crashes, Brook posted up 4th today!</b> -Hoshi Yoshida

<b>This frozen crash scene of Mitch Ropelato will go to the Madam Tussaud wax figure show. Look to the right...marshals be textin'. LOL. </b> -Hoshi Yoshida

<b>Gee didn't do too bad today all things considered 6th place after a crash most people wouldn't even be able to walk away from </b> -Sven Martin

<b>Andrew Neethling blasting, having fun and qualifying 9th.</b> -Hoshi Yoshida

<b>Keeping the heritage rock at the original place and building the course around it.</b> -Hoshi Yoshida
