British GT riders dominated the qualifying for the DH World Cup at Fort William overnight, with Marc Beaumont and Gee Atherton topping the men’s list and Rachel Atherton showing the girls how it’s done.

The Kiwis are all right in the mix as usual; Blenki sits in 5th, Cam, Brook and George 9th, 10th and 11th respectively and J Lo in 13th. In the women’s field, Wellington’s Sarah Atkin snuck into 26th.

Full results are here… 

Marc Beaumont booked top spot, a second faster than teammate Gee Atherton.

Rachel Atherton was ten seconds quicker than the rest of the women.
