Rachel Atherton has defended her rainbow stripes to claim her fifth World Championship title.

Rachel was last down the hill in Val di Sole and beat out Myriam Nicole's hotseat time by more than three seconds.

Healing vibes go out to Manon Carpenter who suffered a massive crash in the holes of the first corner and looks to have broken her collarbone.
