Atherton Continue’s to Dominate

BDS Rd 4 Results 

GT Factory Racing rider Rachel Atherton continues to dominate the national scene as well as the world cup circuit. Last weekend saw her take the win at the 4th round in the BDS in Rhyd-y-Felin.

Atherton was more than 13 second ahead of World Champ & Maddison Saracen rider Mannon Carpenter.

Top 3 British Downhill Series, Round Four results: 

1 Rachel Atherton 4:05.067
2 Manon Carpenter: 4:15.552 (+13.485)
3 Tahnee Seagrave: 4:20.673 (+15.606)

 

Could this be an indication of the result this weekend for Round 4 of the world cup in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, or can Mannon get over the curse of the rainbow stripes and get her first World Cup Win of the season!

The world cup season so far has been pretty devastating for the Maddison rider with a DQ in Leogang Austria at the last round of the W/C & a big off just above the finish line at the hip jump in Fort William.

Tahnee Seagrave of FMD Racing is hot on their heels though with two 2nd place results at Fort William & Leogang, could it be her turn at Lenzerheide to finally get on that top step!

Look out for our W/C updates throughout this week & the weekend!
