Rachel Atherton Out of Worlds with Broken Collarbone

Unfortunate news from Cairns today as we've learned that Rachel Atherton has broken her collarbone in timed training and has been forced out of the competition. An extra tough pill to swallow given how hard Rachel has worked this year to overcome the early season shoulder injury she sustained in Fort William. In hindsight, 2017 will be a year that Rachel will be keen to put in her review mirror. Her's wishing the champ a quick recovery, and looking forward to seeing her fully fit and healthy for 2018.

"I was feeling good today, back to my old self, riding strongly and super-confident as I attacked my timed training run. I’m absolutely devastated that the weekend has ended like this but I’ll be cheering on the rest of the British team with all of my heart."

-Rachel Atherton
