The perfect season is something that few would ever really consider possible in Downhill, such is the massive amount of variables that come into play in such a demanding skill led sport. But somehow Rachel Atherton did just that and we are still scratching our heads wondering how.
It wasn't the foregone conclusion it should have been but regardless our Rachel won the Action Woman of the Year Award. Now we just need to work on the BBC and some recognition in Sports Personality of the Year.
Is there anybody more deserving than Rachel Atherton for an award which recognises the most incredible and inspiring female athletes? World Cup Champion, World Champion and the perfect season. She needs your vote to grab the BTsport Action Woman 2016 award.
