All four women and three of the six GB men qualified for tomorrow's European Champs middle distance final in today's tough races in steep terrain at Carona.
Alan Cherry ran relatively early and was unfortunately 2 seconds out from what turned out to be the qualification time. It was the next to last starter in his heat who came in 14 seconds too quickly for Alan to make it.
Chris Smithard and Will Gardner also miss out, whilst Sasha Chepelin, Alasdair McLeod and Ralph Street qualified.
Only one Swedish man qualified.
The four GB women: Jo Shepherd, Cat Taylor, Charlotte Watson and Jessica Tuliie are all through to the final.
