Stevie Smith took the win in Hafjell, Norway to cut the gap between himself and Gee Atherton at the top of the UCI Downhill World Cup 2013 leaderboard.
Rachel Atherton continued her excellent season, winning yet another stage in the women’s competition. She carries a healthy lead into the final race in Leogang.
The heavy mist in the rocky top sections and the heavy rain lower down created a testing run in the penultimate round of this season’s competition. Despite qualifying fastest Atherton hit a tree on the day and could only finish 12th. Fellow Brit, Danny Hart enjoyed a return to form finishing second behind Smith.
