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. Her World Champion DHI Elite Women downhill run earned the rainbow jersey, and makes for a heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping POV video. The silver medal went to Manon Carpenter, and Tracey Hannah earned the bronze.

To get an idea of how challenging a track like this can be, check out Atherton’s brother, Gee Atherton, who was able to finish the race after a crash (at 2m33s) in one of the fastest sections of the run:
