Rachel Atherton will sit out the Les Gets World Cup after rupturing her achilles after a harsh landing on track.
Another Elite female rider falls foul of an injury as Rachel Atherton joins Tahnee Seagrave and Myriam Nicole on the doctor’s list.
Rachel landed a jump heavily on track and immediately knew something was up. The medics at the Les Gets World Cup got her sorted out and a local hospital visit confirmed a ruptured achilles.
We’d like to wish Rach the speediest recovery and we’ll hopefully see her back for World Champs if not before.
