Santa Cruz Syndicate’s young French gun Loris Vergier has slipped in front of last year’s World Cup Champion to take the qualifying win in Fort William.
Loris Vergier has snuck the win in qualifying here in Scotland by 0.6 of a second over Amaury Pierron. Canyon Factory Racing’s Troy Brosnan was four seconds adrift of Vergier in third.
Reece Wilson came in fourth, five seconds back with Danny Hart just 0.3 behind the Scot. Hart, his team mate Walker and Adam Bratyon would all shrug off practice crashes and make the finals.
Greg Minnaar finished 9th. Can he find eight seconds and add to his tally of seven tomorrow?
