Sam Blenkinsop has scored some good UCI points by qualifying 2nd for the Val Di Sole (Italy) World Cup round. In front of him, Gee Atherton takes max qualification points and steals the overall lead from Greg Minnaar who is down in 15th. Is he a bit timid after a hefty over-the-bars in practice? Is he playing a tactical game with the on-again-off-again weather, or did the crash he have in quali actually knock him down considerably? Dunedin's Justin Leov is just inside the top ten (9th) heading into the finals.
