In the elite men Troy Brosnan (SA) and Jack Moir (NSW) posted top 10 runs with Great Britan’s Danny Hart pulling out the fastest time of the day with a 4.27.525.
But most admitted there was little to gain by pushing the limit with little visability up top during their run.
In the elite women Tracey Hannah (QLD) kept herself upright by playing it safe on a sloppy MSA track.
