The 25th World Cup DH race at Mont Sainte Anne is shaping up to be hell of an one exciting final tomorrow! Combined with the well liked course changes the race kept a few other surprises in store for the qualifiers today. Well they were only surprises if you hadn’t checked the weather. That’s right, the forecasted rain and thunderstorms made their presence felt .Luckily for Tegan Molly and Andrew Crimmins the rain stayed away for the Elite Women and Juniors with both riders having solid runs. The Juniors were up first and Andrew was on fire until he took a little lie down in one of the many Mont Saint Anne corners. Even with the crash, Andrew finished in 2nd place, just .01 second behind 1st place and in a time that would have had him finish inside the top 20 Elite men!Tegan Molly laid down a super consistent run amidst a super strong field of riders and secured herself a spot in tomorrows finals.
The top 20 men weren’t so lucky though as the storm arrived and doused the track with heavy rain. Connor Fearon and his new Operator 27.5 rallied and didn’t let the changing conditions and dry weather tires slow them down. Maintaining his stellar season, Connor ended up qualifying in fifth place and earned 22 more World Cup points in the overall.
