Flora Duffy is minutes away from starting the defence of her World Series title in the season opener in Abu Dhabi.

After unexpected rain, the men’s race, won by South African Henri Schoeman ahead of Mario Mola and Vincent Luis, was marred by a number of crashes on the slippery technical formula 1 race course used for the bike.

Although the rain has stopped, the bike course is still drying out so there is still a possibility of crashes in the womens’ race. The temperature has dropped below 20 degrees C which is also unusual for this race.

Some stunning video footage of Bermuda was shown after the men’s race.
