Watch again as Rachel Atherton pulls back from a seemingly impossible situation!
In her own words… “When I dropped off the big rock roll & hit my inside line I saw a large square loose rock & thought “oh shit”
there was no way I could avoid it, I just knew I had to hold on tight!
… I Landed sideways on the rocks drifting, I just thought “shit I cannot go out of the tapes” so I held as strong as I could and pulled it back on track, my heart was in my mouth as I bucked thru that section I couldn’t believe I was still on the bike, the crowd was cheering like “oooooh noooo, YESSSSS, NOOOOO, YESSAAAASSSSSS!“.
I remember thinking I can’t crash here it’ll finish me off!
