Head to head: Manon Carpenter vs Rachel Atherton

POV footage of how Carpenter fought back from behind to take the win at Leogang

The battle for the Women’s UCI World Cup overall title heated up in Leogang when Madison Saracen’s Manon Carpenter became the first and only rider this year to win her second race.

Carpenter was clearly behind Rachel Atherton at the halfway mark, but with incredible adversity, she fought her way into the hotseat, taking the fourth-stop win.

There is now a mid-season break before the UCI World Cup heads to North America.
