Does Chris Lane need to win?

Hey, a win's always nice, but Chris Lane doesn't need a trophy this week to qualify for the Classic on his home water. Even if he stumbles today and slips all the way to 12th place (and that's as far as he can fall), he's still in the Classic with 442 AOY points. Missing a Classic in his own backyard would have been painful, but he can relax now. He's done it. Ditto for Mark Davis, Morizo Shimizu and Takahiro Omori.
