Fort William Track
Over 25,000 people gathered around the famous Scottish track to watch the Fort William DH World Cup finals. The experience paid off in the end as Greg Minnaar took home the win. The South African set an astonishing time of 4m 35.6s and none of the 18 following riders were able to beat that.
The Women‘s race was once again dominated by Rachel Atherton. Her ninth consecutive World Cup win matched the record of Frenchwoman Anne-Caroline Chausson.
