2016 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup #7 - Downhill - Vallnord (AND)


Rachel Atherton
won World Cup Round 7 in Andorra, simultaneously securing her 13th consecutive World Cup victory, the Series Overall title and a clean sweep of 2016 World Cup victories.

Atherton won the final race by 6.5 seconds ahead of Australian Tracey Hannah and Myriam Nicole of France.

"I cannot believe it!! I totally thought it would never happen, I thought for sure Tracey or Pompon[Nicole] would beat me after qualies was so close” Atherton said.

“I just made some massive changes to my suspension, the opposite of what I had been doing all week, and I tried really hard making my bike stick to the ground and really using the steepness of the track to help me instead of being scared of it ! I am beyond over the moon and to have the perfect season is a testament to the hard work that goes in from the whole team and of how the team have kept my head together when I’ve been too nervous!”
