Rachel Atherton has won the Windham World Cup from Tracey Hannah by just 0.2 seconds!
Rachel cut that one fine! After being nearly five secs up at split 2 she came up short on the big hip, got an almighty swap on and shot off the course through the tapes and re joined the track. The UCI Commissaires ruled that no advantage was gained so the result stood. Good call!
That means Rachel now leads the series overall by 30 points from Emmeline Ragot after her 3rd win of the season. Pretty amazing since she missed out round #1 in South Africa.
Ragot had a massive slam on the finish line jump and ran across the line!
Florian Pugin decided not to race and recover from her injured eye.
Jill Kintner crashed out after split 1.
