Rachel Atherton has just won her tenth consecutive World Cup in Leogang. Atherton is now unbeaten for well over a year and has toppled Anne Caroline’s long-standing record of nine on the trot.
Her dominance over the current women’s field was underlined by a five second victory over Tahnee Seagrave, who was riding with an elbow injury. Result of the day must go to Miranda Miller though, who battled to third place – a new face on the podium is always welcome.
Tracey Hannah grabbed fourth and Manon Carpenter will probably be disappointed with her fifth place having won here in the past
