The battle of Fort William is over, the race has been won. This is what happened.
High winds and driving rain provided the backdrop for one of the biggest World Cups on the race calendar. With riders struggling to hold their lines due to the strong wind at the top of the track, and muddy bogs towards the bottom, there was always going to be a little bit of carnage come race day.
And by “a little bit” we mean quite a lot. The Parkin brothers, all three of them, were on the mountain to capture the action so, sit back, put your feet up and watch the world’s best battle the elements so that you don’t have to.
