MUD, WET AND CHEERS: Hafjell World Cup Downhill Race Slideshow

Stevie Smith backs up his 2012 Hafjell World Cup Downhill performance with another Norwegian win in 2013 as the rain came down but the speeds stayed up. Rachel Atherton continued her crushing dominance with victory by a considerable margin, and the Junior Men's battle rumbles on with Mike Jones taking the grom win. Grab some tear-offs and get wet and wild with the UCI World Cup downhill, as racing wraps up from Hafjell, Norway. Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott and Joe Bowman get soaked to the bone so we can relive the action!

    Excellent work, boys! Especially having to do so in those conditions - one can only assume you all had some of that jet fuel you were drinking earlier in the week. Thanks as always!!
