“I definitely really like this course,” agreed Nyhaug. “It’s fast and fun. The wind was pretty tough, and we had trouble with the headwind on the second straightaway. I’m in Lane One, and it’s the best lane to be in, because the farther you can go inside, the better on this track. I didn’t get touched in the crash on the first run, but I heard it behind me.”
“To go 1-1-2 on the first day is pretty much as good as it could go on the first day, so I’m definitely stoked and ready to go for tomorrow. I’m just doing the best I can, and I had a ton of fun today.”
Jacques Landry, Director of High Performance at Cycling Canada, said: “It was the best situation for Tory; you have the best gate position on all three rides, and he was qualified [for the semifinals] after his second ride. He’s showing good form, he’s quick out of the gate and he’s got acceleration after he is out of the gate as well. So he is in control of a lot of elements right now. It’s a good position to be in.”
