Rachel Atherton’s downhill mountain biking victory at Vallnord

Attack the fast, twisty, often steep, jump-filled, rock and root riddled track at the 2015 UCI MTB World Championships in Vallnord, Andorra with British downhill mountain bike champion Rachel Atherton.

The silver medal went to Manon Carpenter, and Tracey Hannah earned the bronze.
