British team for Downhill World Championships in Andorra

The World Championships in Vallnord, Andorra, is just around the corner, September 5/6th and the Great British team has just been named. It’s great to see a strong male Junior contingent being selected, but unfortunate that there is no Junior Women on the list.

It seems weird not seeing Steve Peat’s name on the list (is that the first tim ever… stats guys???), but he is of course recovering from knee injury. No real surprises in the selection, good to see Fairclough and Kerr make the cut. Here’s the full DH team list:

Elite men

Gee Atherton (automatic as reigning world champion)
Mike Jones
Josh Bryceland
Danny Hart
Matt Simmonds
Sam Dale
Brendan Fairclough
Bernard Kerr

Elite women

Manon Carpenter (automatic as reigning world champion)
Rachel Atherton
Tahnee Seagrave
Katy Curd

Junior men

Laurie Greenland
Frazer McCubbing
Bradley Swinbank
Neil Stewart
Elliot Heap
Charlie Hatton
