RESULTS: Timed Training from Losinj, Croatia, World Cup DH 6

Brook MacDonald and Rachel Atherton fastest at the rocky, unrelenting Croatia downhill venue.

RESULTS: Timed Training from Losinj, Croatia, World Cup DH

The rocks of Croatia showed their teeth today as riders sampled the Losinj World Cup Downhill track for the first time. Loic Bruni injured his arm first run, taking him out for the day and possibly the race, and a day earlier, Claudio Caluori crashed while filming the Red Bull TV course preview, knocking his head. At the end of practice, official timed training was opened up for the top riders to gauge speed and bike settings in preparation for qualifying on Saturday. Brook MacDonald and Rachel Atherton ran quickest.

Watching the live timing and looking at results, it sure seems like there were plenty of mechanicals and unfinished runs. We'll get some track-side info as soon as we can.

There are 140 Elite Men, 26 Elite Women, 43 Junior Men and 9 Junior Women on the qualifying start lists (seeding for Jr. Women). Timed training does not provide series points or count toward any official result, so it's a loose baseline as to what race day times may be.
