The fastest kids on the block went on the clock in Les Gets today to make their bid for a finals day appearance tomorrow. In the junior women's, current World Champ Erice van Leuven had a nasty OTB in practice and was airlifted out. We await news of her condition and wish her all the best for a speedy recovery! France's Lais Bonnaure added her name to the list of junior women with a qualifying win this year with a solid performance that put her 1.3 seconds ahead of compatriot Lisa Bouladou. In the junior men's category, Bohdi Kuhn is still out with concussion symptoms, leaving the door open for Ryan Pinkerton to continue his recent dominant run of form - his 3:27 was in a class of its own today. Shoutout to Roee Ostfeld, a first-year junior from Israel who's currently having a go at World Cup racing as a privateer with the support of his parents and a crowdfunding campaign. Roee has been getting faster and faster throughout the season, and landed himself in third place today.
