Rachel Atherton: Her Dirt on Training, Preparation and Racing World Cups
She’s fast, focused, and fit. And, it is this very determination and drive that has led Rachel Atherton to dominate the women’s field on the World Cup Circuit. As the 2008 World Champion for downhill, at 20 years of age, Rachel is so fast that she often beats nearly half of the men trying to qualify for the final round at the World Cups.
Rachel’s world title wins haven’t slowed down since Livingo either. She’s continued to prove that she truly deserves the rainbow stripes by confidently walking away with 1st place finishes at the last two World Cups in Mont St.Anne and Bromont, Quebec.
