Over 10 years with Dan Brown (right) as my Team Manager - from my first World Cup win in Brazil in 2006 at 18 years old to the "Perfect Season" winning every World Cup in 2016 at 28 years old!! Still blows my mind what has happened over the years!! So much life together! This guy puts the hours and hours in because he loves racing and loves taking people to the top. The future is bright & exciting! 🀘🀘🀘🀘 @trekfactorydh not forgetting @joekrejbich mechanic of the dream team!! 😘😘😘😘

Small surgical procedure for me today after struggling with some health issues that started the days after World Champs & the end of the season. 🏁 Racing is so tough, winning makes a race week even tougher for the body to handle - and no matter how much we look after our bodies sometimes the balance just isn't a balance! I think Health is the most important thing in the world - without it we are nothing and can do nothing- don't ignore your body, you only get one chance! πŸ™Œ

Seeing all the Womens March stuff makes me Proud to be a Human Women. Stick up for what you believe in. Voice your opinions. Be kind. Let's all do what we feel in our hearts we can do. The World is a neutral planet & we SHOULD all be sharing its space as Equals. #womensmarch

Bio
Rachel, the youngest Atherton at 23 years old has already achieved global status within the sport.

At only 20 years old, Rach became the first British woman to win the Elite Women UCI Downhill World Championship in June 2008 with an unprecendeted winning margin of 12 seconds. The same year she wrapped up the World Cup Series. Since then she has gone on to win numerous UCI Downhill World Cups and Medals at the World Champs, but injuries have prevented her from defending those titles...the game is now on!
