Silva Qualifies #1 in Teutonia
Dalua 1 sm

Teutonia, Brazil - Douglas "Dalua" Silva lowered the time he set yesterday to earn the number one qualfying position for tomorrow's Malarrara Pro Teutonia IGSA World Cup race.  Silva set a time of 1:18.817 that was more than three seconds faster than the time he set yesterday.

Kevin Reimer also lowered his time to 1:21;428 to secure the number two qualifying position.  Everton Alves was third with a time of 1:22.076 to qualify third.  Defending Champion Mischo Erban came back from yesterdays qualifying crash with a solid but conservative run of 1:22.282.  Carlos Augusto did not start the second run but his time of 1:23.109 was good enough to retain the number five spot.
In 2009, Silva set the track record with a 1:17.723 second run.  Silva was the only skater that even came close to duplicating that feat today.  Tomorrow is looking to be a very exciting race with dual, head to head elimination rounds.  Silva and Erban are on one side of the bracket, while Reimer and Alves are on the other.  If all goes to plan, there should be some real fireworks in the semi finals as the four strongest riders will pair up.
