Riders are battling it out in Australia this weekend for the chance to be crowned National Champion. Super dry, dusty conditions are made worse by the temperature. It's really, really hot. The list of racers is pretty impressive - Sam Hill, Troy Brosnan, Chris Kovarik, Jared Graves, Bryn and Rhys Atkinson, Ben Cory, Tracey Hannah, Jill Kintner (not eligible for the title but still racing), Connor Fearon and several others are in attendance.

Troy Brosnan continues to impress with another first place qualifier. - Video screenshot from Ty Bowmaker's upcoming Vital exclusive.

Team TLD/Monster/Specialized delivered another one-two punch with Brosnan leading out qualifiers and Hill just over 2.5 seconds behind. Times are tight for spot 2-5, so expect to see things shuffle around a bit in the finals. In the Women’s qualifier, Tracey Hannah barely edged out Jill Kinter by just 0.8 seconds. The Men's U19 qualifier went to Dean Lucas who surprised a lot of people by out qualifying Connor Fearon. Dani Beecroft secured the Women's U19 class with a quick enough time to slot her into 3rd in the Elite Women's class.
