Steve Smith (Devinci Global Racing) had another strong race in the Elite men's qualifying, finishing fifth at 3.388 seconds to top qualifier Troy Brosnan (Specialized Gravity).  Both other Canadians in Elite men qualified fr the final, with Mark Wallace (Devinci Global Racing) in 44th and Forrest Riesco in 61st.  Canadian World Cup leader in the Junior Men, Finnley Iles (Specialized Gravity), clearly suffered mechanical issues to just roll down the course in last place, but will still be able to race the final.  Canada had no women racing, with Rachel Atherton (Trek Factory Racing) beating Manon Carpenter (Madison Saracen) by over five seconds.
