The 2017 CrossFit Games unofficially kicked off this morning as the individual athletes headed to Quann Park for the Cyclocross Time Trial. The one lap time trial will determine the heat and starting position for the Cyclocross event on Thursday.

In small heats of five, the athletes did their best to navigate the grass, sand, hurdles and other elements in an effort to get the best starting position tomorrow.

Based on comments from the athletes on social media they are enjoying the new type of event although some big names did not fare so well on their time trial. Athletes like Brooke Wells (34th), Camille Leblanc-Bazinet (30th), Scott Panchik (39th) and Ben Smith (33rd) will need a much better performance on Thursday to avoid a disastrous start.

On the other hand, Kristen Holte and Sam Briggs topped the women’s times while Ricky Garard and Mat Fraser had the best men’s times. Here are the final results of the Cyclocross Time Trial:

Just finished the time trial! Feeling official! Tomorrow should be awesome. #Repost @crossfitphotojournal ・・・ Wednesday, 12:00 PM. @emilybridgers, leaping the hurdles on the cyclocross course as a spectator causally films on his phone. This time trial is only one lap of the course. Tomorrow, these athletes will do three. “It was really fun,” Emily tells me. “You don’t usually catch yourself thinking that during Games events.” No kidding. Her only complaint was that her feet occasionally slipped off the pedals, causing her to bang her shins on them. This is Emily’s 4th consecutive appearance at the CrossFit Games. Her performance today puts her in 9th position out of the 20 athletes she will race on the course tomorrow. #crossfitphotojournal #CrossFit #CrossFitGames
