Cody Webb might be riding injured, but he still rode the first day of qualifying at Erzberg. This race is fairly unusual in that qualifying is nothing like the actual hare scrambles. It’s a rock-strewn fireroad. Last year, Webb crashed on the second day of qualifying and had to sit out the main event. Josep Garcia is in first and Mathias Walkner in second. Walkner is on his Rally bike and won’t be a factor in the actual race. The riders who still have to better their times are Wade Young, Billy Bolt, Mario Roman, Alfredo Gomez and Graham Jarvis. Tomorrow, qualifying continues and the main event will go off at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. There’s a nine-hour difference from Pacific time, so west coast Americans have to get up at 5:30 to watch it live on Red Bull TV. East guys can sleep in ’till 8:30. It’s questionable as to whether or not Cody will ride.
