The two fastest downhill women on earth duke it out at the Leogang, Austria World Cup Sunday in an epic back-and-forth battle that’s worth watching several times.
Great Britain has two of the world’s fastest women downhillers these days—GT’s Rachel Atherton, and Madison-Saracen’s Manon Carpenter. Red Bull released a side-by-side video of these two fearless shredders vying for the win in a thrilling back-and-forth battle. The clip highlights the resurgence of World Cup downhill in recent years generally speaking, and the Leogang course in particular which this year has produced some amazing moments.
First there was Claudio Caluori’s hysterical singing course preview, then there was the boss-like performance of American Aaron Gwinn who rode 98-percent of the course with his rear tire off the rim. And now this. All we can say is give us more!
