Going Out with a Bang - 2014 World Cup Downhill Finals Race Slideshow

The 2014 UCI World Cup downhill season has come to an end. Roost and rocks were flying through the air as it was one last run for the best mountain bike descenders on the planet. A fresh course at a new venue in Meribel, France, provided the perfect arena for a dramatic wrap-up to the points race. Sam Hill and Rachel Atherton attacked the steep track to take race victories while Josh Bryceland and Manon Carpenter laid down performances that would lock in their World Cup overall victories. The dust is still settling from the celebrations, but the action is here to take you between the tape. Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott, @maddogboris, Joe Bowman, Marius Maasewerd and a list of dedicated contributors are the reason Vital MTB can bring you the incredible stories and mind-blowing photos from the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. Thank you!

    I heard Sven made a little girl cry over that second to last shot with the cork on the stage. What a big meanie head.

    Loved the Pink Floyd jersey and got the reference even though I'm so much of a fan. That final shop is the piece!
