That’s the DH all wrapped in Mount Sainte Anne! Atherton has continued her domination of the world series by taking her 4th this season !
Mount Sainte Anne is not a track for the weak and it definitely separates the weak from the strong! The results weren’t any surprise, Atherton has been looking strong the whole season, since a miserable illness stricken 2014 season she came into 2015 more determined than ever! The step seems to provide some difficulty for many of the girls bar Rachel who cleared it as well as most of the men!
World Champion Manon put together a solid run, she finished just over a 3 seconds behind Rachel! Carpenter seems to be getting her season back on tack after the curse of the rainbow stripes disrupted the beginning of the 2015 season for her.
Myriam Nicole returned to the WC scene today after she broke her collar bone at the beginning of the season. Nicole has come back strong and showed that it was a wise decision to sit out of Lenzerheide and wait until she was back to 100% before returning to racing. She appeared strong and ready to redeem the rest of the season! Nicole finished with and awesome 3rd place!
We don’t have long to wait until round 6 of the season! Next weekend see’s the 6th round of the UCI Downhill World Cup head to Wyndam USA! The other girls are eager to knock Rachel off the top step so it is sure to be and interesting race!
Emmeline Ragot didn’t start the race after a suspected broken elbow and ankle from this mornings practice! Get Well Soon Emmeline!
Atherton has left MSA with one hand on the trophy and its looking like nothing can stop her from taking the title this season… but let’s not speak to soon it is Downhill after all!
