Atherton and Pierron tame rainy track for Fort William victories

Reigning UCI Mountain Bike World Cup downhill champions Rachel Atherton and Amaury Pierron put down their marker for a 2019 repeat with victory at a weather-hit Fort William on June 2. Atherton has won six World Cup titles and used her experience to record a superb 5:15.560. Pierron drew on his 2018 success to pull out a brilliant run and take a lead which compatriot Loris Vergier could not better for his second Fort William win.
