Val di Sole didn’t go quite as planned for the Athertons. Constantly changing course conditions on the toughest track of the World Cup had racers struggling to get comfortable during practice. On one such run, Gee went down injuring his hand. But Gee is no stranger to injuries. He rallied for finals with the help of some Velcro to keep his hand on the bars.

Meanwhile, Rachel put down a run that looked to be a winner, but it was Tahnee Seagrave at the end of the day who knocked Rachel back to second place.

Despite the less-than-stellar results, the Athertons are looking ahead to this coming weekend for the next stop in Andorra.
