After a day of training and qualifying in bad weather the track looked a lot different bathed in sun and under a blue sky.  Not stopping for long to look at the stunning views, riders from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force charged out of the starting gate and threw themselves into a series of twisting, turning, steeply banked switchbacks, with the occasional rollers and sharp drop jumps there to catch out the unwary, racing head to head in groups of four.

The top two riders from each heat made it to the next round of this furiously paced knockout competition and for those most successful, on to the chance of victory in the final.
