The current women’s Downhill World Champion sustained nerve damage to her left shoulder during pre-season training camp in America and is expected to be out of action for the next three to four months.

Current World Champion Rachel Atherton sustained a dislocated shoulder yesterday when she was involved in a training accident with a car. The Atherton trio have been training hard in Santa Cruz California since the start of January and yesterday was no exception.

Rachel Atherton: Her Dirt on Training, Preparation and Racing World Cups 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.
