HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

  • Atherton was forced to miss the 2017 event due to injury, but returned this year to Machynlleth on the back of an amazing UCI Mountain Bike downhill season.

  • The 30-year-old fended off Tahnée Seagrave for a record sixth overall World Cup title, then dominated in Lenzerheide to win her fifth World Championship gold.

  • In the middle of Wales, she faced the unique prospect of trying to hunt down 200 skilled downhill bikers in the all-female race over a tricky 2 km course.

 

 

 

  • First-timer Wakeley was the first rider to cross the finish line with a superb time of 02:59:75 followed by Francie Arthur and Stacey Fisher for the podium spots.

  • Atherton raced hard and fair as usual and managed to hunt down over one hundred of the riders on the track to finish 40th in the glorious autumn weather.

  • She declared: "What an absolute buzz! It’s been perfect with the sun and the track is perfect with loads of line choice up there. Everyone has really pushed themselves and has massive smiles on their faces."
