RESULTS: Rachel Atherton and Greg Minnaar Qualify Fastest at Fort William

Big wheels dominate qualifying at Fort William with Top 3 finishes in Elite Men while Rachel Atherton (on 27.5-inch wheels) decimates the Elite Women's field with a run 13 seconds faster than her nearest competitors. Sylvain Cougoureux smokes the Juniors by over 7 seconds with a time that would have landed him just outside the Top 10 Elite Men's results. Just before qualification started the rain kicked in, wreaking havoc on the woods section.
